Description

Deep, shimmering violet. Assertive, mineral- and spice-tinged black raspberry, blueberry, incense and peony aromas carry a spicy topnote. Ripe red and blue liqueur flavors are braced by a spine of smoky minerality and show building spiciness and a hint of vanilla. Finishes with persistent floral and spice qualities, discreet tannins and sharp delineation. Made with 20% whole clusters and 20% new oak.

Brothers Benjamin and David Duclaux are fourth generation vignerons in Côte-Rôtie, their great-grandfather having bought the estate flanking the villages of Tupin and Semons in 1928. The estate holdings cover 13 acres, made up of spectacular terraced vineyards cut into the steep slopes and held up by four miles of stone walls made of the gneiss that forms the substrate in this southern portion of Côte-Rôtie. They farm “en echelas,” with each vine trained to a single stake, foreswear the use of pesticides and herbicides, and do all the vineyard work by hand. In the cellar, they use little new oak and aim for elegance in their wines, which have become some of the most sought after in Côte-Rôtie.
