Tasting Notes: Aromas of olive tapenade and notes of pepper emerge from this beautiful red wine, which presents a core of blue/purple fruits, a medium body, tannins ripe and a great finish.
The Domain: Nothing predestined Michel Tardieu to be part of the greatest name from Rhone Valley unless his passion for wine, terroirs, and people…
State employee, he used, in his free time, to cross the vineyard from Rhone Valley and elsewhere. Passion pushing, he decided in 1996 to create Tardieu – Laurent in Lourmarin, in the heart of his native Provence.
Since Michel dedicates his time to selecting the greatest parcels and the best grapes to master them through rigorous but respectful aging methods, with sharpness and delicacy, to please wine’s “amateurs”.
Michel loved to serve some drops of great wine in the children's glasses at Sunday lunch. Imagine his happiness to have them working with him 20 years after to select, share, blend, age, and give birth to great wines dedicated to Rhone Valley’s lovers.
