Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2012


A plusher and richer #côterôtie than I have tasted up until now. Could be the 2012 vintage was warmer than others? — a year ago

What a stunner. Drinking perfect right now at 20 years. Earthy and wild but the fruit still definitely pleasant. A real treat. #coterotieftw #côterôtie #animale #guigal #ampuis — 3 years ago

Cordeloux Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2010

UB40's famous song--"RED RED WINE"--came to mind as I tasted this, to me, totally new producer, who makes classic #CôteRôtie with minimal amounts of sulphur. Such winemaking practices can often go sideways in the wrong hands, but this was delicious and, although still quite young in a #magnum, it was the perfect mate to our smokey roast Tuscan chicken--RED RED WINE MAKE ME FEEL SO FINE!!! #MarieetPierreBenetiere #Syrah #Cordeloux

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2012

Succulent red coming from decomposing "brune et blonde" schists terraces down in the Malleval, Ampuis district. Being subject to total destemming, cold maceration and microoxigenation -among other heresies-, this one seemed like a recipe for disaster. But the artistry of Gaillard and the impeccable terroir deliver a refined yet fleshy Côte-Rôtie. Don't expect a Guigal-style, 100+ points, behemoth. There's a definitive Burgundian influence here. #côterôtie #Syrah #rhone — 3 years ago
