Pichon’s Côte-Rôtie is lighter and more elegant than Côte-Rôties from other producers. Made with Syrah and Viognier grapes from 30-to-40-year-old vines, then raised 13 months in 75% new oak, this is a sumptuous, full-bodied Rhône that ages slowly.

  • Toasty oak and blackberry aromas on the nose are prominent elements on the palate as well, joined by truffles, dark chocolate, and background floral notes. Dense, with a chewy texture and muscular tannins, this full-bodied strongman needs time. Likely to be approachable from 2017–2019.

    Food pairing: Game, juicy steak in a pepper sauce
