    Winemaker's Notes:

    With this Cote Rotie 2009, it as if the 2007 is back! How similar! We find everything we like in a Côte Rôtie: freshness, balance, serine's relief, the deep and complex aromas which allies finesse and purity of the fruit. The strength and the terroir are easy to understand, simply because it is obviously nice. The color (blood) is characteristic, the tannins are feminine, the structure is not over-weighted, and the aromas are so easy to identify on a blind.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Rich and dense, but velvety and nicely detailed, with sleek-edged cassis, blackberry and plum fruit woven with white pepper, mulled spice and dark olive notes. A strong, tangy, iron edge takes over on the finish, with lots of latent grip. Best from 2013 through 2022.

    Wine Spectator

    As for the negociant northern Rhone selections, the dense purple-hued 2009 Cote Rotie reveals lots of black olive, bacon fat, black raspberry and blackberry fruit notes intertwined with hints of charcoal and underbrush. This impressively endowed, medium to full-bodied Cote Rotie should drink well for 10-15 years.

    Bright purple. Classic syrah aromas of cherry, boysenberry and violet, complicated by smoked meat, pipe tobacco and licorice. Vibrant and sweet, showing impressive depth to its dark fruit preserve, anise and floral flavors. Tangy acidity and silky tannins give lift and shape to the long, floral finish.

    Big let down--flawed with too much Brett.
