法國除左Bordeaux同Burgundy外, Rhone Valley 亦非常有名,
而Southern Rhone 名氣最大既莫過於Chateauneuf-du-Pape (教皇新堡)
一般用Grenache 為主, 再blend Syrah (即Shiraz) 同Mourvedre或另外十多種法例容許既葡萄

Tardieu Laurent 1996年為立,名字起源於兩位創辦人Michel Tardeiu及Dominique Laurent。Tardieu Laurent乃是少數採用生物動力種植法耕作的酒商
Vieilles Vignes 即老藤old vines, Tardieu-Laurent 採用超過80歲的Grenache, 50歲的Syrah及30歲的Mourvèdre老藤混釀而成
而老藤生產力相對細好多, 有研究就指出咁樣會令酒既果味更加集中,
同時因為old vines既根相對其他new vines更深入地底, 令佢更易吸營養同埋水份,
如對old vines 有興趣 可以望望呢度有更多資料

Tasting note for reference:

Julia Harding MW (from JR's team):

Deep intense dark fruit on the nose. Fine dark damsons. Even with that ripeness of fruit there is a remarkable finesse in the tannins, which are very fine and fresh. Although the tannins are not resolved, they leave your mouth feeling clean and refreshed. Alcohol well integrated. Concentrated, full of life and very long.

Jeb Dunnuck:
The Rhone Report , 96/100 , 2010-08-31

Sporting a deep purple color as well as a captivating nose of licorice, chocolate ganache covered cherries, spice, and vanilla, with touches of background wood, the 2007 Tardieu-Laurent Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes opens beautifully in the glass. Full bodied and stunningly fruited, the wine carries a rich, textured palate, perfect balance and a focused, very long finish. Give this beauty 2 to 3 years to integrate its components and then drink over the following 20.
