Tasting Notes

One of the world's great Syrahs. We get just 3 magnums of this, and a a few cases of bottles each year, such is the global demand for this from restaurants around the world. Cote Rotie from Stephane Ogier has been hitting the high notes for several years now and is always one of the very best of the appellation. Glorious wine.


Press Note:

Vinous - Josh Raynolds - 91-93pts "High-pitched red berry and floral pastille aromas are complicated by suggestions of olive paste and star anise. Juicy, focused and pure, displaying excellent lift to its mineral-laced black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Finishes long and subtly tannic, with a suave floral note" "Tasted in components: #1, from But de Mont: Exotically perfumed blue fruit and floral scents, with a building incense quality. Sappy, precise boysenberry and spicecake flavors show a deft blend of power and finesse. #2, from Fontgeant: More pungent and smoky, displaying a deep dark fruit character and a touch of licorice. #3, from Besset: Deeper and darker in fruit profile, with a sexy floral note adding lift. Shows an appealing silky texture and surprising power on the the back half. There's 8% viognier planted in this vineyard. #4, from Leyat: Highly aromatic blackberry and floral pastille qualities, with a spicy note adding lift. Quite primary on the palate, offering sweet dark fruit flavors that stretch out slowly with air. #5, from Viallière: The most aromatic of these barrels, displaying a wild array of red and dark berry scents and a strong Asian spice character. Sweet and seamless, with excellent clarity and back-end thrust. #6, from Bertholon: Intensely mineral, with lively dark berry and floral character and hints of black pepper, licorice and allspice. This soil is heavy in schist, according to Ogier. #7, from Champon: Explosive aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, incense and Asian spices. Sweet and fleshy in the mouth, with intense boysenberry and floral pastille flavors and an undercurrent of zesty minerality that adds grip. #8, from Côte-Baudin: Highly perfumed red and dark berry scents, along with hints of violet and incense. Pure and focused, finishing with silky tannins and good cut. The proposed final blend should be a powerful yet graceful wine, with spicy berry character and exotic floral qualties. It may not be a wine for the ages but I'll bet that it's delicious soon after release and for the following decade."
