In the category « Long keeping », we gather all the wines of the vintage 2017 that will have, according to us, an ageing potential of at least 20 years (even if they will reach their peak before). This category is thus intended for the (very) patient ones with a great cellar, or for those who will have something to celebrate in 20 years (or more).

The ability to age well is the preserve of the finest wines, but more affordable wines can also have a great ageing potential due to their excellent vineyards, the grapes varieties used or to the winemaker’s will. The ageing varies as well depending on the temperature of the cellar (the colder the cellar is, the slower the wine will age) and the bottle’s size (wines in large containers like magnums will age slower and longer than wines in bottles).

    In 1994, Michel Tardieu began selecting and maturing wines from very old vines and from the best terroirs, following the precepts of his friend Dominique Laurent. While Laurent is known for the concentration of his Burgundy wines, Tardieu has, due to the innate power of Rhone Valley wines, sought to favour elegance and aromatic complexity in his selections. In addition, the luxurious maturation in high quality barrels is a perfect match for the wines of this region. Promoted to two stars in the 2020 Revue du Vin de France guide.
