Côte Rôtie, Northern Rhône
Drinking window: 2020 - 2026
Bright purple. Intense floral pastille, dark berry and peppery spice scents on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy, incisive and pure, showing strong thrust and cut to the gently sweet black raspberry and cherry cola flavors. A smoky mineral quality adds lift to the floral-tinged finish, which lingers with excellent tenacity.
Score: 92 points -- Josh Raynolds. Tasting date: December 2015
