Tardieu Laurent : Cote-Rotie 2012

Rhone Valley - Cote-Rotie - Red Tardieu Laurent Tardieu Laurent 2012 F616/12
  • Parker : 91-93
  • J. Robinson : 17+

This Côte-Rôtie is 100% Serine, the Northern Rhone clone of Syrah, from 60 year old vines in the Cote Brune. A terroir driven wine, this wine spends 12 months in new barrels made from oak sourced from the Troncais, and then aged another 12 months in foudre. From granite soils, this wine is concentrated and structured, with smokey black and blue fruits, herbal notes of licorice and black pepper spice, violet, olive brine and a deep minerality. Medium to full bodied with a long finish and ripe subtle tannin.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
Coming all from the Cote Brune, the 2012 Cote Rotie is another promising 2012 from this producer. Possessing the classic Cote Rotie perfume of raspberries, olive tapenade, violets and tinges of bacon fat, this medium to full-bodied, supple and approachable effort has solid concentration and sweet tannin. Enjoy it any time over the coming 10-12 years.;2013 - 2025
