Cellar for up to 15 years. No need to decant before serving.

Hermitage is easily the most prestigious appellation in the Rhone Valley and is famed for its incredibly long-lived reds which can easily rival the world’s greatest wines in depth and complexity. This example from Domaine Tardieu-Laurent is crafted from exceptional old Syrah vines tended by their partner growers and ages in new oak barrels for 12 months followed by a further year in large oak casks called foudres. This extensive maturation process helps to soften the firm tannins and also add finesse and polish to this magnificent red.

On the nose you immediately notice the intense cherry, blueberry and sweet spice notes along with hints of woodsmoke, dried violets and cigar box. The first sip reveals a generous full body, well-developed tannins and a structure which will respond very well to further cellaring. This is a powerful yet balanced red which would make a fine addition to any collection and can also be enjoyed now alongside a prime steak or hearty beef stew.

Founded by winemaker Michel Tardieu and Burgundian vigneron Dominique Laurent in 1994, Domaine Tardieu-Laurent operates as a negociant and sources young wines from their respected partner wineries. To maintain excellent quality standards they insist on working with small producers and use biodynamic practices wherever possible.
