From two parcels of 80 year old vines (one of which is located directly behind Alain Coudert's home), the Cuvee Tardive is quickly gaining "cult wine" status amongst Beaujolais aficionados. With a total bottle production ranging in the low thousands, the Cuvee Tardive is a concentrated, deep, weighty, and complex expression of Beaujolais, though it would be closer stylistically to Moulin-A-Vent then it would to Fleurie. Made for ageing, the Cuvee Tardive also drinks well in its youth, offering flavors and structure more akin to its Cote D'Or cousins in the north then what is considered typically Beaujolais. Cellar this beauty or use it to change minds about the potential of Beaujolais.
