Tardieu-Laurent Les Becs Fins

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 54520

JD90+90–92 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 12/14/2020
A similar deep purple/red, the 2019 Cotes Du Rhone Les Becs Fins is another expressive, complex, outstanding wine from this estate. Black raspberries, saddle leather, peppery garrigue, and sandalwood emerge from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, balanced 2019 that has silky tannins and loads of character. It too is ideal for enjoying over the coming 5–6 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Solid, this red has a fleshy, juicy feel, with anise-laced plum and blackberry pâte de fruit notes, backed by a graphite edge on the lightly toasted finish. Drink now through 2024. 5,000 cases made, 200 cases imported.

Also pure Southern Rhône goodness, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes has classy notes of red and blue fruits, candied orange, flowers, peppery garrigue, and loads of Asian spices. Beautifully textured, silky, and elegant on the palate, it has wonderful tannins, a notable sense of freshness, and a great, great finish. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Ripe and expressive, with a lovely display of warmed plum, raspberry and blackberry puree flavors infused with red tea and anise notes. Features a solid mineral note that chimes on the finish, while a roasted apple wood frame keeps it all in line as the fruit takes an encore. Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah. Best from 2023 through 2036. 650 cases made, 200 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Mouthfilling, with a delicious gush of warmed blackberry and boysenberry compote flavors backed by licorice, bramble and sweet tapenade notes, which contrast with the fruit nicely. Features a nice buried iron spine on the finish. Best from 2024 through 2038. 500 cases made, 25 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

The 2019 Côte Rôtie Vieilles Vignes offers slightly more dark fruit and minerality as well as a more concentrated yet backward style on the palate. Full-bodied and structured, with terrific purity, it’s going to require more bottle age than the base and, but it should have two-plus decades of longevity. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Tardieu-Laurent Les Becs Fins Blanc

2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 57269

The 2021 Côtes Du Rhône Les Becs Fins Blanc offers lots of white peach, honeyed flowers, and apple blossom-like nuances in a medium-bodied, supple, fruit-forward, yet incredibly pure and balanced package. It’s a terrific white well worth seeking out. I’d drink bottles over the coming year or two, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it keep longer either. (Jeb Dunnuck)

A tasty, friendly white, with honeysuckle, creamed pear, quince and warm ginger flavors that are broad and open. Reveals zesty spice and quinine bitter notes, which make for a lively finish. Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Clairette. Drink now. (Alison Napjus)

An up-front, pretty version of this cuvée that leads with its fruit, the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes Blanc offers lots of honeyed pineapple, white flowers, quince, and subtle toasty notes to go with medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. It shows some classic bitter almond and minerality with time in the glass and has a great texture, good overall freshness, and a great finish. (Jeb Dunnuck)

There’s a flashy shortbread aromatic leading off here, but this stays bright and lively thanks to well-defined yellow apple and mirabelle notes. Verbena and quinine underscore the finish, adding focus and length. Delicious. Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Picpoul. Drink now through 2022. 500 cases made, 50 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Tardieu-Laurent: Great Rhones | WineTransit.com

Tardieu-Laurent in the wine trade is what we call a "négociant." Instead of owning vineyards, they select and buy wines from growers in many regions of France. In this case the wines are from the Northern Rhone (Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage) and the Southern Rhone (Cotes-du-Rhone and Chateauneuf-du-Pape). Their very high standards have led to critical acclaim at every price-point.
