France
Syrah
Red Wine

Wine Spectator Notes : Rich and dense, but velvety and nicely detailed, with sleek-edged cassis, blackberry and plum fruit woven with white pepper, mulled spice and dark olive notes. A strong, tangy, iron edge takes over on the finish, with lots of latent grip. Best from 2013 through 2022.

Robert Parker Notes : As for the negociant northern Rhone selections, the dense purple-hued 2009 Cote Rotie reveals lots of black olive, bacon fat, black raspberry and blackberry fruit notes intertwined with hints of charcoal and underbrush. Outstanding texture, impressively endowed, medium to full-bodied mouth feel and terrific finish on this Cote Rotie. Should drink well for 10-15 years.

Tasting Notes : Aged for 15 months in new oak (70%) and one-year old barrels (30%). We find everything we like in a Cote Rotie - freshness, balance, Syrah's relief, the deep and complex aromas which allies finesse and purity of the fruit. The colour is characteristic, the tannins are feminine, the structure is not over-weighted, the aromas are so easy to identify on a blind. Cheminee soot, bacon, violet, graphite, cold ash, ancient roses. Bottled without filtration.
