The Maison Tardieu-Laurent Gigondas Vieilles Vignes is a southern Rhône red wine blend of Grenache (80%), Syrah (15%) and Mourvèdre (5%) aged for 12 months in one year old oak barrels and then 12 months in foudre. The wine was bottled without fining and filtration.

Jet-plum in colour, this presents something of a mélange of red and black fruit, combined with floral, herbal and forest floor aromatics, so typical of the area. Fruit so fresh, there is almost a crunch, the product of almost 100% whole bunch pressing. Layers of spice, herbs, pepper and dark chocolate all play a role in this aromatic perfection. A lovely wine, with a spiced mocha cream finish.
