Takes for ever to open.
Steep and rustic at first, when open, it’s friendly and round.
But make no mistake, even once open, after the smooth soft entry, it morphs into a very animal, wild and steep experience. Not falling flap, more the opposite! Yum! — 14 days ago
The wine finally opened up and fill all expectations...spicy nose and very refreshing mouthfeel. — 2 years ago
Bacon fat, dried herbs and plenty of round acid and minerality. Gorgeous right now! — 3 years ago
BlackBerry, blueberry with a savory gamy finish — a month ago
My last Côte Rôtie of Coteaux de Tupin, deep red color, nose oozing of smoke and dark berries, taste very light and not as thrilling like it used to be🧐 — 2 years ago
@Delectable Wine this is Julien Barge Saint Joseph "Les Coteaux de Legende" it's not in the database. Thanks.
Soaring nose. So 2015. A hint of Brett is so appealing here amongst all the blackberry and raspberry deep fruit. Intoxicatingly aromatic. Palate is as 15 as it gets. Intensely complex, juicy, ripe and so deep with out of this world freshness. Thrilling. Hints of game and smoke with an intense granite finish. Awesome wine and shows the greatness of 15 at the value price point. Awesome wine. — 3 years ago

One of the great new Condrieu. Right there with Coteaux de Chery and not quite Coteaux de Vernon which is another level. Easily top 3. Stunning perfume or flowers, some not too ripe tropical fruit wonderful lavender and sage. There is a firm mineral core behind the perfume but it is a special nose. Palate has wonderful purity, density and freshness with good minerality and wonderful juicy intense structure. Wow. Wonderful purity and freshness and showing stunning complexity already. Brilliant. I’m sure with air my score will increase. — 2 years ago
