As a rabid fanatic Cote Rotie man, of course I enjoy this, hits all the notes one would expect, it’s just not a virtuoso. — a month ago

Young and spritzy. I have one more bottle I’ll be holding onto for a few years to see how this changes. Excellent food wine. — 2 months ago
New place who dis?
Woah. To mark the occasion, we’ve got 22 year old wine.
The color on this is just breathtaking. I honestly didn’t think this would be that good because I got the bottle for $25 in a now closed wine shop, Taste Wine. The guy selling it to me didn’t have much to say, so my expectations were set at basically nothing.
Bouquet notes of cheddar, honey, apricot, and marmalade.
Honeycomb, definitely that characteristic petrol. Bae isn’t a huge fan of the aftertaste, but it adds a bit of complexity for me. A slight pear note right at the end. It’s got body and mouthfeel. Color and radiance. What an interesting thing age has done: create maturity and complexity, and most of all beauty. Also just a touch of raspberry on the end note. Just keeps giving and giving.
Also, finally a little bread pudding, this sort of unctuous, sweet, funky note lingers. — 2 months ago
This is a nice wine for sure, but for the price ($40+) was hoping it would be more expressive. Decanted for 2 hours and had with roast chicken - excellent pairing. Lots of red cherry fruit. I find the freshness and overall integration to be slightly lacking - doesn’t have the seamlessness I was hoping for. — 3 months ago
