    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ripe, smooth and almost fleshy with incredible concentration and balance : the best Crozes-Hermitage ever produced by Tardieu-Laurent!

    Critical Acclaim:

    Michel Tardieu’s 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.
    Range: 90-93

    The Wine Advocate

    Inky-purple. Aromas of blackberry, violet, licorice and smoky minerals. Fat, sweet and lush, with a slightly medicinal quality to its weighty dark berry and fruitcake flavors. Finishes with a very fine dusting of tannins and a major blast of minerals. Distinctly rich but there's ample energy to maintain shape and focus.
