"Juicy but elegant, with a beam of red currant and damson plum fruit backed by fine-grained tannins. Notes of shaved vanilla, briar and coffee chime in on the finish. Drink now through 2016." (WS)

"($60-$72) Vivid red color. Impressively complex bouquet of spicy red berries, kirsch, potpourri, Asian spices and minerals. In the mouth, the spice and mineral quality complement the wine's sweet raspberry, candied cherry and currant flavors. Slow-mounting, fine-grained tannins add support to the long, brisk finish. A quintessential Cote-Rotie, emphasizing finesse and focus over brute force. I've always liked the graceful, Burgundian qualities of this estate's wines and this wine is a textbook example of that style. " (IWC)
