2011 Tardieu-Laurent - Les Becs Fins Cotes Du Rhone Villages (84 pts) #winereview - Deep ruby color with a pale rim. Medium intensity on the nose. White pepper, blackberry jam, boysenberry, wet earth, and a bit of leather. Medium acidity, medium ripe and chalky tannins, medium+ alcohol, and medium+ body. Dark fruit jam on the initial attack. Blackberry and boysenberry. A decent texture, but the tannin and earthy flavors take over the palate and just leave astringency. A bit of white pepper on the finish. More concerning is the short length of finish that drops suddenly. A fruit forward easy drinking wine in its day, but the fruit has given way to the structure of the wine. Past its prime. #france #rhonevalley #southernrhone #cotesdurhone #cotesdurhonevillages #tardieulaurent #lesbecsfins #syrah #grenache #wineterroir #wine #winegeek #winelover #winetasting
