Maison Tardieu-Laurent 2014 Cotes-du-Rhone "Les Becs Fins" 750ml
The 2014 Côtes du Rhône les Becs Fins has plenty of peppery, Provençal characteristics as well as medium-bodied richness and depth on the palate. Made from 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Cinsault that was aged all in concrete tank, it has rock solid fruit and will drink nicely for 3-5 years.
Winemaker Michel Tardieu makes a relatively modern style of wine that never lacks for fruit, texture or personality. Score: 88 points -- Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate, Oct 2015
