Tardieu-Laurent’s Vieilles Vignes Vacqueyras is made from 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and 15% Syrah. Typically Rhône, it is full-bodied and long on the palate, with intense concentration. Half of the fruit was aged in concrete as whole bunch, with half destemmed and left in barrels. A touch spicy on the nose, this is dark fruit-forward with a mineral edge.
As one of the leading négociants in the Rhône, Maison Tardieu-Laurent have access to some of the most established old vines in the region. Tardieu-Laurent handpick the producers whose fruit finds its way into all of their wines, thus producing exemplary expressions of Rhône terroir at all tiers.
