TARDIEU-LAURENT Vieilles Vignes, Cote-Rotie 2017

<h2>Tardieu-Laurent Côte-Rôtie Vieilles Vignes</h2> <p>This Vieilles Vignes Côte-Rôtie this is Syrah as it should be, at least as defined by the variety’s spiritual home in France’s Northern Rhône: gently medium-bodied, with a tensile peppery freshness lifting aromas of lilac florals, smoked meat, iodine-nori, blueberry, Asian spice, orange zest and apricot pith, the latter attesting to a dollop of Viognier in the blend. The oak effortlessly frames the crescendo of flavours, serving as an adjunct rather than a scream. This is the sort of Syrah that is near-impossible to craft in Australia where sugar ripening outpaces phenolic maturity and alcohol soars. Côte-Rôtie (roasted slope) sees gradual ripening of fruit to facilitate the sort of attenuated tannins that define the world’s best wines. This, no exception.</p> <div class="btn btn-lang-lg btn-block btn-lang-red" style="max-width: 300px; margin: 30px auto; font-size: 13pt;"><a style="color: #fff;" href="/search?IncludeBuyNow=true&UId=17101&Brands=29082" target="_blank">Shop Tardieu-Laurent</a></div>
