Strawberry's on the nose, but not overwhelmingly fruity. Hints of red fruit, tart Apple, light acidity. Not as much structure as other rose's coming out of the southern part of France.

Aromatically, earthy with a shadow of Brett. Spiced red fruits and red peppercorns complement savory tea and leather on the palate; the Brett is an accent—not overwhelming, but ever-present. Needs red meat. 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10 Mourvèdre, 5% Carignan. 14% abv | $15.50

A step up over the ’09, the 2010 Cote Rotie Cote Blonde La Chatillonne (88% Syrah and 12% Viognier) gives up a fabulous bouquet of violets, rose petal, blackberry jam, game and hints of wild herbs that continues to develop in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and finesse driven on the palate, with a seamless texture, this gorgeous 2010 can be consumed now (preferably with a decant), or cellared for a decade or more.

If you can find some lemon basil, pair it with this. It's lovely.
