Tardieu-Laurent Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2012
Grenache Blend—VINTAGES#: 739482
Superb and with loads of potential, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, with the Grenache aged in older barrel and the Syrah in new barrels) is more deep and layered than the Cuvee Speciale. Offering up impressive notes of mineral, new leather and smoky black fruits, this full-bodied, layered and textured 2012 has superb mid-palate depth, fine tannin and an all-around concentrated, backwards feel. It will require 3-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15 years or more. Drink 2017-2027. Score - 93-95+. (Jeb Dunnuck, erobertparker.com, Oct. 2013)
