Gentaz-Dervieux

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1990

Rare bottle, different from the 1990 Gentaz Côte Rôtie Côte Brune.... this wine is comprised of 2 lieux dits: La Landonne and La Viaillère. It does not contain any of Gentaz’s small parcel in Côte Brune that was adjacent to the subplot that is now known as La Turque. For this reason Côte Brune does not appear on the label of this particular bottling. — 14 days ago

Gentaz-Dervieux

Côte Brune Cuvée Réservée Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1982

Knockout, dark crimson red with great clarity, and spicy sweet tannin still kicking with a several minute finish. 2nd time tasting this vintage with consistent notes. The pinnacle of classic Côte Rôtie right here. — 14 days ago

Delas Frères

Seigneur de Maugiron Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2018

Founded over 160 years ago, Delas Frères was acquired by Champagne Deutz in 1977. 100% Syrah from a blend of grapes 70% Cote Brune & 30% Cote Blonde, aged in French oak (30% new), aromas of red berry fruits and complex spice. On the palate raspberry and plum flavors, savory with herb pepper spice. Fine tannins, nice mouthfeel, lingering ending with fruit and mineral on ending. — 25 days ago
