Characteristics of Tardieu-Laurent Côtes-du-Rhône Guy Louis
Tardieu-Laurent Côtes-du-Rhône Guy Louis is a red wine made from Grenache Tinta, Syrah and a small fraction of Mourvèdre grapes. It is produced by Maison Tardieu-Laurent and belongs to the AOC Côtes du Rhône.
Maison Tardieu-Laurent is a winery founded in 1994 by Michel Tardieu and Dominique Laurent, but which is currently owned exclusively by the Tardieu family. The winery is considered one of the benchmarks of the Rhone. It is not a common winery, since it acts as a negociant. It chooses vineyards that it likes and agrees winemaking conditions with the owners. In this way it can have wines from almost all the Rhone appellations in its catalogue. In the Priorat, in Catalonia, Michel Tardieu also advises Bodegas Mas Alta.
The vineyards for Tardieu-Laurent Côtes-du-Rhône Guy Louis are between 30 and 50 years old and the harvest is vatted and fermented with only one third of it being destemmed. Once fermented, the wine is then aged for 12 months in Allier and Tronçais barrels that are either new or one year old, and subsequently spends 6 months in a foudre. Lastly, the wine is bottled without clarifying or filtering, and therefore some sediment may appear in the bottle.
Tardieu-Laurent Côtes-du-Rhône Guy Louis is a wine that is made exclusively with "Crus", indicating that it will age brilliantly in the bottle.
Serve at 16.0ºC
