Tasting notes
Aged in new French oak, this medium-bodied red presents quintessential black olive and savory herbal notes that are balanced by a streak of minerality that runs through the wine.

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Feb 2011)
Michel Tardieuís 2009 red Northern Rhone offerings still have a long wait in barrel before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. They all reveal deep colors as well as abundant concentration, structure and power. I thought the best cuvees were the Cornas, St.-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage and Hermitage. The Hermitage and Cornas appear capable of 15 or more years of evolution, and the Crozes-Hermitage and St.-Joseph should last at least a decade. The Cote Rotie Vieilles Vignes exhibited great fruit, but it was not a sensational wine in comparison with the other efforts.

Technical notes
From 50+ year old Syrah vines planted in the Saint Pierre de Boeuf, Mauves and Chavanay communes.
