Tardieu-Laurent Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale 2007
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
This is gorgeous, with wood spice and tobacco notes leading the way for a massive core of black Mission fig and warm currant preserve flavors. This has the opulent fruit of the vintage, but maintains an edgy minerality as well. The long finish ripples with lavender and black tea. Grenache. Best from 2010 through 2023.
