Winemaker Notes

The fruit is ripe, the palate is rich, fleshy and powerful, with good density. Mourvedre was hugely successful, harmonizing the blend to produce a beautifully balanced Chateauneuf du Pape.

Blend: 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of 75% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and 5% Syrah from the oldest vines is the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes. It exhibits a deeper color than its two siblings along with copious notes of new saddle leather, roasted herbs, black pepper, lavender, raspberry and black cherry fruit. This medium to full-bodied 2011 should drink nicely for a decade.

Range: 91-93 Points

WS 91
Wine Spectator
Offers a singed anise frame, with hints of wood spice and licorice root carrying the core of fleshy plum, blackberry and black currant fruit. A ganache note hangs on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2022.

Tardieu-Laurent, , France - Rhone
Tardieu-Laurent
Domaine Tardieu-Laurent was established in 1994. It is a partnership between Dominique Laurent, a former pattisier (and with the girth to go with it) and one of the hottest names in Burgundy, and Michel Tardieu, a dynamic young winemaker. Tardieu-Laurent is an extremely unusual operation in that they are a négociant only, buying young wines from growers all over the Rhône, which they mature and blend before bottling. They own no vineyards and don't buy grapes, only wine.

Tardieu-Laurent is very much an "artisan" producer, making between half a dozen and 20 or so barrels of each wine. The majority of the wines are from the southern Rhône although superb cuvees of Cote Rôtie and Hermitage are also produced. The wines are all aged in small oak casks (often 100% new) and bottled with no fining nor filtration. Michel Tardieu proclaims himself as a confirmed terroirist, insisting that his aim with each appellation is to express powerfully the fruit and sense of place, never masking these factors with wood.
