1999 Tardieu-Laurent Hermitage (torn label)

SKU #1551632 95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark While the 2000 Tardieu-Laurent offerings are excellent for the vintage, they are significantly less concentrated and textured compared to the awesome 1999s. The 1999s which were given fabulous ratings from barrel, were not tasted from bottle. However, given part experience with bottled Tardieu-Laurent wines, they are undoutedly as good as I predicted from cask. They are not racked until bottling, produced with minimal levels of SO2, and bottled with neither fining nor filtration. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2002)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (aged in Dominique Laurent's "magic casks") Medium ruby. Wonderfully aromatic nose of cassis, smoked meat, gunflint and violet. Silky-sweet and pliant; considerably more generous in the mouth today than the Cote-Rotie. But then this is more a "wine of the sun," says Tardieu, from vines facing full south. Suave and superb. Finishes with lush tanins and lovely subtle sweetness from the oak. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2002)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Opulent Hermitage that blends local terroir with an international style. Full-bodied, rich and ripe, it cascades with blackberries, raspberries and grilled and toasted notes. (PM) Inner quote mark (8/2002)
