Chateau La Tulipe de La Garde Cabernet 2012, Rose 2013, White 2012
Chateau La Tulipe de La Garde Red 2012, White 2012 and Rose 2013 share one common character: aroma's burst out of the bottle and are pure and honest wines; they are good with any slurp-worthy foods. All tasty wines made in a modern style for a friendly price, these wines are guru Michel Rolland products with the new micro-oxygenation technics fixing the fruit, with palate rounded up by tiny bit of oak, and also with lovely colours and tight rim. All these 3 wines are made of nothing else but pure, ripe varietal characters, utterly easy to drink, and with lots of character.
The Red 2013 is made of nothing else but from ripe Cabernet, spiced up a little with a tiny bit of Syrah. An enjoyable wine without pretentions, this little red has a smattering of tannin which keeps things fresh. DD89, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2014 Silver Medal , IWC London 2014 Commended
The Rose 2013 is made of nothing else but pure, ripe Grenache, with a tiny bit of Syrah. Smart palate, clean finish. DD88, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2014 Silver medal, IWC Londen 2014, Decanter 2014 Commended.
The White 2012 is made from nothing else but ripe Sauvignon Blanc. A crowd pleaser with vivid citurs fruit with a slight high class, candy tone. DD88, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2014 Silver Medal , IWC London 2014 Commended, Decanter 2014 Commended.
Robert Parker says Chateau La Tulipe de la Gfarde is ‘atonishing good’, and is ‘best in its class.’ They are, of course, for clients who appreciates simplicity; they are not for the snobs.
