Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2011

Crimson-black in glass with dark brick rim. Brief decant. So gamey, wild berries on the nose, but very alive game; on palate quite seamless tannins but that ferocious- ness is in every sip. More of those red fruits but beef jerky too. Dark blood, juicy. The delicate structure of an aged Nebbiolo, with rose petal accents, meets a Bandol, covered in horse dung. Fascinating experience as hadn’t had an aged Rotie…ever? — 2 months ago

Les Binardes Côte-Rôtie Syrah

Well …. This is a complex rating. Drank at Red Hook Tavern (the academic philosophy 101 class definition of a platonically perfect restaurant-tavern) while eating the steak au poivre (which I have a particularly strong childhood game changing culinary memory attached to) and a couple at the table next to me was having an all out no holds barred take no prisoners heated couples fight (wtf?!) induced me to have (half way through this incredible bottle) a ptsd induced panic attack. Sadly had to walk around the block and couldn’t finish the au poivre 🥲 but the remaining half bottle of Côte-rôtie magic restored me to sanity (after the insane couple left.) Thanks to the Côte-Rôtie gods!

(Oh, this was remarkably good for such a young Côte-Rôtie, might not age crazy well, but a young prelude to what it can become…) 🔥🔥🔥
