Here's another rich, ripe, harley-riding wine from Tardieu Laurent that demands your attention. From a toasty vintage, this grenache shiraz blend shows ultra-ripe plums, raspberries, and almost prune-like smells on the nose, with a hint of interesting savouriness and rusticity. The palate is full-blooded, sweetly-fruited and powerful, with some firmness to the tannins, and a deep, savoury-edged finish. If you like rich, ballbusting reds, you'll love this!
Archetype of the Rhône Wine, round, powerful, ripe, concentrated…
Syrah lights the Wine by its freshness, whereas Grenache brings the
structure and wraps the Wine in its meatiness. A great success.
