Description

Inky, bright-rimmed ruby. Highly expressive cherry, violet pastille, baking spice and smoky mineral aromas show excellent definition and pick up a suggestion of incense with air. Sappy, concentrated black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show very good energy, while floral and smoked meat nuances build on the back half. Smoothly blends richness and energy and closes with bright, energetic lift, building florality and smooth tannins that lend gentle grip. 20% whole clusters and 40% 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.
