Add to Cart$50In stock

Made exclusively from the Rozier parcel, with vines 10-55 years-old, this Côte-Rôtie blends sturdy Syrah grapes with a small amount of delicate Viognier. Raised 13 months in mostly new oak.

  • Tasty and approachable now, but likely to develop through around 2017. Delicious tangy raspberry flavors. The nose is not especially earthy, but you can taste a hint of clay soil on the mid-palate.

    Food pairing: Charcuterie

  • The youthful nose is full of oaky spice, nutmeg and other sweet baking spices, black olive tapenade, anchovies, violets, and mushrooms. The palate offers full-bodied flavors including coffee, cocoa, brambles, black currants, boysenberries, and tapenade, with leafy herbal and garrigue-like suggestions, as well as pungent spice. Intense, full-flavored and robust with massive structure, powerful fruit, and a lengthy finish. Likely to be drinking well well into the 2030s.

    Food pairing: Hearty dishes in sauce
