2016 Tardieu Laurent Condrieu
One of the best white wine years for Tardieu since the beginning! The cool year is expressed in the aromatics, cool peach and apricot aromas in the nose, light, a little mint, apple, very sublime. Extremely fine and creamy with its chalky minerality, white fruits, flowers, jasmine, white ripe pear, creamy white peach with infinite reverberation. The wine is lush with high intensity. It is hard to explain how a wine with its intensity remains overwhelming slim and tender.
From The Winery:
Time has come to grasp our dictionary of the superlatives, to try and tell the talent of this Vintage… Nonetheless, words will not suffice to describe the unfathomable pleasure that the Tasting of this fabulous Year triggers… Winter was characterized by relatively mild temperatures; then a cool spring slowed down the growing of the vine. And, throughout this period, steady, gentle, rainfalls evenly accompanied the vegetative cycle. These extremely propitious conditions have understandably had a positive impact on the harvest, fantastically beautiful, healthy, and generous… !Summer season was marked by high heat, high without being excessive, with little rainfall. Extremely favorable factor, nights remained very cool. Therefore, the vines were under pressure, but moderately, at the limit of stress, yet without ever suffering! As a result, maturation and concentration operated conjointly : here is one major key to the genius of this Vintage, which calls to the unusual the fantastic, at the borders of the explained and the unexplainable!
