    Winemaker's Notes:

    Elegance is the major word in 2006 which will remain as a good classical vintage. Our vine in the Cote-Blonde confirmed a quality improvement related to the draught of the last vintages... All the vines around the Viaillère developped as usual their incredible typicity: sweet texture, aromas of graphite and smoked bacon. This vintage reminds me of 1998, with more freshness. 1998 tastes very well at the moment. Cote-Rotie 2006 will age with harmony because the grape ripening went just to the right level.

    Squashed lead, blackcurrant, bacon, roasted coffee.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Cote Rotie (100% Syrah, 9,000 bottles produced) was aged in 60-70% new oak casks. Its gorgeous nose of tapenade, creme de cassis, and flowers is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine displaying sweet fruit, good acidity, beautiful density, and a subtle dosage of oak.

    Deep ruby. Raspberry, cherry, violet and minerals on the nose, plus an undercurrent of smoky minerals. The smokiness repeats on the palate, adding complexity to the sweet red and dark berry flavors. Cracked pepper and sweet floral pastille notes linger on the finish, which is admirably pure and persistent.
