Tardieu-Laurent 2018 & 2019

Domaine Tardieu-Laurent was established in 1994. It was a partnership established between Dominique Laurent (until 2008) - one of the hottest names in Burgundy, and Michel Tardieu - who is leading the new wave of dynamic, young Rhone winemakers. Michel Tardieu is is one of the most highly acclaimed négociants in the Rhône. His talents have been widely recognized for having secured long-term, hand-shake deals with 60-70 vignerons who carefully guard the location of their 50- to 100-plus-year-old vines. During the course of the year, Michel regularly visits the vignerons and walks their vineyards. When harvest and fermentation are complete, the wines are racked into Michel’s barrels and aged in his cellar. He is very much an “artisan” winemaker, producing small quantities of wine which are aged in a combination of small oak casks, large foudres and wooden tanks as the Tardieus believe that “the extra time they allow for élevage gives better texture and aromatic complexity”. The wines are bottled with no fining nor filtration.

“Michel Tardieu has exceptional knowledge about some of the finest vineyards and grape sources in both the northern and southern Rhône...”
Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate
