2012 Tardieu Laurent Les Becs Fins Cotes du Rhone Villages
A blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache with the Syrah component sourced from 30 year old vines and the Grenache from 60 year old vines. Very deep dark purple red colour with black tinged edges and a bright purple hue. Nosing reveals lifted top notes of black raspberries intermixed with black cherries followed by some liquorice, subtle dried meats and spice. Medium weight with a round supple mouthfeel the palate possesses a rich exuberant flavour profile of ripe black raspberries, some liquorice and subtle incense infusions with a spicy back palate. Dryish finish with very fine grained tannins. Long aftertaste of black raspberry, liquorice and spice. A delicious Cotes du Rhone.
Cellar 3-4 years (2017-2018).
