Dear Friends and Wine Lovers,
We often taste wines that knocks our socks off, wines that coat the palate with a depth, complexity and richness that excites our taste buds.
These bottles are usually out of the price range of ordinary wine lovers, so when we taste a wine that has the sensuous character we crave at a
price point we adore, we feel the need to share it with you.
The Tardieu-Laurent "Le Becs Fin", Cotes Du Rhone-Village is such a wine, having passed the stringent Le Dû's
Wines taste test with straight A’s. Tardieu-Laurent is a négociant firm concentrating on the wines of the Rhone Valley, formed by Michel Tardieu,
who owns a winery in Luberon, and Dominique Laurent, the renowned Burgundy winemaker. It is a blend of Grenache and Syrah made from 50 year
old vines matured in new oak and bottled unfiltered.
I honestly believe that everybody who has bought a bottle has returned to buy more, usually a case. Now it is
time for our e-mail friends to discover this amazing value. You will be thanking us from the first sip to the last.
