Tardieu-Laurent Hermitage 2009

Tardieu-Laurent Hermitage 750ml 2009      
Sku: 1701292*

Tasting notes
Aged in new French oak, the wine is framed by licorice and mineral notes that provide lift on the long and persistent finish.

 Wine Spectator 95 points (Jul 31 2012)
This is on the burly side, with cocoa and ganache notes followed by a hint of roasted chestnut, while dark currant, fig and coffee notes fill in behind them. There’s a muscular feel on the finish, with lots of baker’s chocolate lending a chunky feel for now, but cellaring should tame that well enough. Best from 2015 through 2030. 455 cases made. –JM

Technical notes
100% Syrah, from 50+ year old vines harvested from the steep, granite slopes in Roumeas, Les Murets, Beaume, Le Meal and Pierelles. Aged in new French oak.
