    Winemaker's Notes:

    Côte-Rôtie is situated in the northernmost region of the Rhône Valley. The Syrah (96%) vine is planted on steep terraced hillsides which catch and focus the sun's heat, giving the region its reputation and name: "roasted slope." A small percentage of Viognier (4%) is interplanted with the Syrah, and the two are harvested and fermented together, giving the wine more elegance and lightness.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Possessing additional richness, the 2009 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde boasts rocking cassis, scorched earth and chocolate to go with more classic cured meats, mineral and violet-like nuances that emerge with time in the glass. Full-bodied, gorgeously pure, with a core of sweet fruit, it too will totally thrill over the coming decade or more.

    The Wine Advocate

    A rich, fleshy style, offering pastis-soaked plum, blackberry and currant fruit at the core, backed by ganache and singed juniper notes that add texture and length on the finish, with a terrific iron spine. Should age nicely. Best from 2015 through 2030.

    Wine Spectator

    Opaque ruby. Smoky raspberry, cherry and violet aromas are lifted and sharpened by a suave Indian spice note. Sappy and broad in the mouth, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a touch of fruitcake. Warm yet lively, finishing with excellent thrust, supple tannins and persistent spiciness. Philippe Guigal noted that he won't be surprised if this wine never really shuts down.
