Winemaker Notes

This shows fresh fruit, intensely concentrated due to the very low yields of the old vines. An extraordinary wine, it is bound to surprise.

Blend: 70% Grenache, 30% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Opulent, with a warm ganache note introducing layers of blackberry preserve, steeped black currant and roasted fig. The finish unfurls with velvety tannins and a long echo of espresso and graphite.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
My favorite Cotes du Rhone is the 2010 Guy Louis, a blend of 60% Grenache (from Rasteau, Cairanne and the Plan de Dieu) and 40% Syrah. This opaque blue/purple-colored, medium to full-bodied offering displays a stunning nose of forest floor, camphor, barbeque spices, licorice and blue, red and black fruits. This loaded cuvee may ultimately eclipse the sumptuous 2009.
Range: 90-92

Tardieu-Laurent, France
Tardieu-Laurent Winery Image
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.

Typically thought of as a baby Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the term Côtes du Rhone actually doesn’t merely apply to the flatter outskirts of the major southern Rhône appellations, it also includes the fringes of well-respected northern Rhône appellations. White can be produced under the appellation name, but very little is actually made.

The region offers some of the best values in France and even some first-rate and age-worthy reds. Red varieties include most of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape varieties like Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and Counoise, as well as Carignan. White grapes grown include Grenache blanc, Roussanne and Viognier, among others.
