Michel Tardieu's 2009 red Northern Rhone offerings still have a long wait in barrel before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Michel Tardieu's 2009 red Northern Rhone offerings still have a long wait in barrel before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. They all reveal deep colors as well as abundant concentration structure and power. I thought the best cuvees were the Cornas St.-Joseph Crozes-Hermitage and Hermitage. The Hermitage and Cornas appear capable of 15 or more years of evolution and the Crozes-Hermitage and St.-Joseph should last at least a decade. The Cote Rotie Vieilles Vignes exhibited great fruit but it was not a sensational wine in comparison with the other efforts.

Fat sweet and lush with a slightly medicinal quality to its weighty dark berry and fruitcake flavors. Finishes with a very fine dusting of tannins and a major blast of minerals. Distinctly rich but there's ample energy to maintain shape and focus.
