  Côte-Rôtie is one of the star appellations in Northern Rhône Valley - Your Sommelier loves it. Nose exhibits an elegant bouquet of dark fruit, black pepper and mint. Palate is intense and nervous with a beautiful refreshing acidity, ending on a toasted, spicy finish. A superb wine we cannot wait to try again, and again...

What experts says    
88 "Made from 100% Syrah, the 2013 Cote Rotie has pretty, juicy and classic notes of dark berry fruits, olive, bay leaf and toasted spice to go with a medium-bodied, elegant, lightly textured style on the palate. It has the elevated acidity of the vintage, yet is nicely balanced, has sweet tannin and a clean finish. It can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 8-10 years."
