Great showing, everything in its place. The most approachable 2010 Cote Rotie I’ve had to date. Structured, but balanced bu its time in barrel and bottle, still has stuffing to go. Leather, slightly baked mix of black and red berry fruit, cherry and plum, tobacco, sweet BBQ meat, talcum, Asian spices, granite, cedar, iron.

Very polished Guigal from @Eric LaMasters that was so inviting. Very open knit and compelling. Mocha, smoked herb and a dark fruit profile.

WNH event number two. Rhône varietal wines with TX BBQ...a match made in Heaven!

Smoked raspberries, herbs and spice, and mocha/tobacco aromatics. Probably the smoothest and silkiest palate out of the other bottles during lunch. Graphite, licorice and crushed potpourri. Beautiful wine from

99 points? The flaw in the rating system. If you compare it to other ampuis, sure. Compared to La mouline 2010 this is a 91-93 pt. cote rotie. Phenomenal.
