Big time jam oak bomb that is still impressive fresh and balanced.

This bottle was lit. Just at the inflection from extracted to resolved, the complex aromatics foretold an even more delightful rainbow of black tea, bacon fat, dark cassis and tapenade. Buttery smooth. Oaky tannins to take this baby another 10+ years easy.

The nose was sweet and showed tremendous depth and concentration of ripe fruit. New oak is present but not overwhelming. The wine is complex but lacking a firm structure. Alcohol was not overwhelming. The wine is tight and will be very special with time and a loss of baby fat. #coterotie #guigal #northernrhone #rhonevalley #syrah #ctbucklinwine

Amazing Richness and complexity. Pepper and perfume noses with deep currents, bold structure, and oaky finish. Wow.

Tasting unbelievably youthful for its age. Powerful and forward for a Côte-Rôtie.
