Turn Back The Clock Pricing - Long-Haul Beaujolais:
2017 Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Cuvée Tardive

Posted by Joe Salamone

This is an irresistible deal.

Roilette's Cuvée Tardive is one of Beaujolais' longest lived and most profound wines. There are few bottles of Beaujolais that have the track record for aging, can deliver incredible value, and are as loved as Tardive.

I'm very happy to offer the 2017 Tardive for $22.95 per bottle. It's been over a decade since we've been able to offer the wine at similar pricing.

Please note: this is a very limited parcel that we bought at very good pricing. Once it's gone, that's it. 

The 2017 vintage in Beaujolais is powerful and packed with mineral-accented complexity. The vintage was less extreme than 2015 and 2009, but the vintage is a relatively ripe one. This gives the 2017 Tardive an astonishing scale and resonance. 

The hallmarks of Tardive are meatiness, dark fruits (black cherries, mulberries, plums), olives, licorice, smoke, mint, and an array of floral notes. This is all to say that Tardive delivers more than its fair share of complexity. With some bottle age, it really starts to shine through. Few Beaujolais are able to offer such profundity.

By now, most of you know the story: Alain Coudert set out to make the anti-nouveau, a bottle to showcase just how complex, structured, and ageworthy Beaujolais can be. He definitely proved his point - Tardives with 10 or 15 years of age can be shockingly good.

Tardive's reputation speaks for itself. We strongly advise you to take advantage of this impressive deal. I don't expect it to stick around for long, and doubt I'll be able to offer Tardive at this price anytime soon.
