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.

Tasting Notes

Gigondas can be difficult to appreciate as a Great Rhône Wine in its young age, as it is often austere. This Cuvée avoids harshness and oversimplification. An extreme ripeness and very mild tannins give this Wine a superior dimension - never reached before with this Cuvée.

Press Review

"A textbook example of the appellation, Tardieu’s 2004 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes comes from
50-80-year-old vines and is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre. Showing more fruit and
texture than most wines in the vintage, it gives up loads blackberry and currant-styled fruit, licorice,
cured meats and underbrush to go with a full-bodied, voluptuous profile on the palate. Still youthful,
enjoy it over the coming 7-8 years."
91/100 Jeb Dennuck, Wine Advocate,
