Domaine Jasmin Cote Rotie 2012 Vintage
A wine that seems to make the rounds as you can currently find it from @rarewineco , @kermitlynchwine and - here in Denver - from @ajselection. Old school producer that survived through WWII and sticks to just one bottling. De-stemmed from what I surmise but not without a rustic, bloody meatiness on the nose. Slight reduction, still young. The fruit character is markedly NOT black or purple like the Crozes / St Josephs I'm so often drinking instead (cheaper). Instead, it's a medley of black cherry, strawberry and sweet raspberry with an oddly contrasted tropical edge (hello 4% viognier!), that ultimately takes a back seat to the savory, spice notes. Certainly ample body despite being only 12.5% and aged in neutral oak. Seems built for the long haul. Cool wine. I sell magnums of 2007... I wonder what that tastes like?

Amazing dry Riesling! Peach, honeysuckle, mandarin blossom, and tangerine with notes of peaches. Best taste all night. #riesling #2013 #rudiwiest — 5 years ago

Certainly don't get to enjoy wines like this often enough. Stellar. My most memorable white in awhile. Clean and polished. Sharp floral aromatics and an incredible tangerine finish. #dryriesling #rudiwiest #classicwines
