@Delectable Wine new cuvee called “Olea.” This is the best casks of Jasmin’s Côte Rotie. 95% Syrah, 5% Viognier. Nose is a bit closed right now with some wood but it blows off and gets insane in 10/15 minutes. This gets a new barrel treatment with a blend of Hungarian and French oak. But under that is dazzling blackberry, raspberry, even cassis and serious granite and rocks. Mint and spice and such a deep minerality and all accented by some sweet oak. Oak is integrating more and more with air. Nose gets almost dizzying. So perfumed. Smokey and meaty with also some gorgeous florals. Impossibly complex. Palate is stunning and this sucker is built to age. Really built to age with unreal depth of fruit and such amazing freshness. Wow. This is so refined and elegant. Amazing fruit purity. More black than red. So so long. This is incredible. To be this massive and so refined is quite a feat. The finish is endless and the freshness is something else. Wow. So so long. Insane concentration never heavy. Almost perfect but surely will be with age.

Wow. One of the best cote roties I’ve ever had. A wine of exquisite detail and perfect balance.

Nose is violet lilac lavender. Blackberry flowers. Perfect integration. So elegant. Not heavy or intrusive despite everything that is going on.

Palate is such soft blackberry fruit. Almost velvety. Internal aromatics are insane. Delicious in an elegant way. More Mont Blanc than chocolate mousse.

Finish is flower extract and soft blackberries clinging to the palate and teeth.

As good as wine gets.

3 hrs in a wide-bottom decanter before tasting. A **stunning** bottle of Cote Rotie. On the nose: oak influence at first, but a few swirls and and that is overtaken by a heavenly and musky wild strawberry and blackberry perfume, then some citrus blossom, and as the fruit recedes a bit, it blends into a kind of vanilla compote. On the palate, fantastic acidity and hi-toned, while being weightless and simultaneously dense...just dances on the palate with lemon and sweet blackberry, and a soft leathery tang. Wow, this is unbelievable for being this young. While this might shut down, if it doesn't, I can't imagine how this could ever not be compelling.
