For each vintage and each appellation, there are always wines that distinguished themselves by being cheaper than others with the same quality level, or by being far better than others in the same range of prices.
These “best values for money” of the current vintage are highlighted in this category.
Thanks to vines (Syrah) 60 years old, Mr. Tardieu produces a 'grand' Crozes-Hermitage. Divided between fruit and minerality, in a round and silky style more Burgundian than Rhodanian, a perfect introduction to the Hermitage.
100% Syrah (vines aged 60 years) blending 4 terroirs: Larnage, Battis, Gervans and Coteaux de Mercurol. Vinification 1/3 harvest not destemmed, maturing 12 months in new and one wine barrels then 6 months in tuns. No fining, no filtering.
Perfect balance between the gourmet raspberry/cherry fruit (as in Hermitage) and the mineral tension of the schist and granite subsoil (as in Cornas). Syrah and serine (small syrah), aged 60 and over 100 years respectively.
100% syrah and serine (small syrah) aged from 60 to over 100 years on 6 terroirs from north to south of the appellation, from Chavaney to Mauves. Vinification 1/2 harvest not destemmed, maturing 12 months in new and one wine barrels then 8 months in tuns. No fining, no filtering.
From Syrah and small Syrah aged 60 years minimum. The austerity due to the schistose soil is perfectly balanced here by Michel Tardieu's talent as a breeder. A model for the northern Rhône.
100% Syrah and Serine (small Syrah) aged from 60 to 100 years on 3 schist soils: Les Savaux, Les Chaillots and the lower slopes of Patou. Vinification 1/2 harvest not destemmed, maturing 24 months in new and one wine barrels. No fining, no filtration.
Great wine from Côtes-du-Rhône, 60% grenache aged 50 years and 25% syrah aged 40 years, vinified and matured like a great vintage and built for good ageing. This is the reference vintage of the Tardieu-Laurent cellar.
60% Grenache (vines aged 50 years), 25% Syrah (40 years) and 15% Mourvèdre (30 years and over) on the terroirs of Lirac, Rasteau, Vacqueyras, Cairanne and Beaumes de Venise. Vinification 1/3 harvest not destemmed, maturing 10 months in one or two wines barrels, then 8 months in tun. No fining, no filtration.
Blend of 70% Grenache aged 80 years, 20% Syrah (40 years) and 10% Mourvèdre (40 years), on the clay-limestone slopes of Rasteau, a fleshy, generous wine, typical southern Rhône.

P.S.I. (Peter Sisseck Initiative) is the wine of a group of producers gathered by Mr. Sisseck (Dominio de Pingus) according to precise specifications: 100% tempranillo plots aged at least 30 years, necessarily cultivated in biodynamics. The objective is to rediscover the soul of Ribera del Duero, with gentle extractions, long macerations and a practically wood-free ageing process. A wine with superior fruitiness, finesse and great tannic sweetness.
