2015 E. Guigal "La Mouline" Côte-Rôtie
Top Pick!
98-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "On another level, and unquestionably the best of the three vintages, the 2015 Côte Rôtie La Mouline sports an inky purple color as well as an off-the-charts bouquet of black currants, smoked herbs, spring flowers, gamey meats, and acacia flowers. Massively concentrated, opulent, and as sexy as wine gets, it reminds me of the 1978 La Mouline and has perfection written all over it. If you can afford it, this is a magical, legendary wine in the making that will keep for 4-5 decades." (12/2018) 99 points James Suckling: "A very ...

2010 E. Guigal "Château d'Ampuis" Côte-Rotie
Back In Stock!
99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More closed than when I tasted it earlier this year, the 2010 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is an incredible effort that’s made from 93% Syrah and 7% Viognier. Coming from the estate’s top sites and aged 38 months in new oak, it has no problem standing beside the top three single-vineyard releases. Crème de cassis, vanilla bean, smoked meats and licorice all flow to a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, structured Cote Rotie that needs another 5-6 years of bottle age, but will keep for 2-3 decades. (JD)" (12/201...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie Eminence from Niero is another brilliant 2015 that should be snatched up by readers. A blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier sourced from the Valliere and Coteau de Bassenon lieux-dits, aged in 20% new oak, it has a beautiful perfume of black raspberries, dried flowers, incense, and cured meats. Medium to full-bodied and seamless on the palate, it has an elegant, pure, yet concentrated style that’s going to continue evolving gracefully for 15 years or more." (03/2019) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Lavender and vio...

2015 E. Guigal Côte-Rôtie "Brune et Blonde" (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Spectator: "Dark and winey, this is youthfully tight, with a core of intense black cherry and black currant preserve flavors, encased within layers of olive, singed alder, juniper and iron. Very focused and driven through the finish. Cellar for maximum effect. (JM)" (09/2019) 94 points Vinous: "Glass-staining ruby. Powerful black/blue fruit, floral pastille, cola, olive and incense aromas pick up a smoky mineral nuance as the wine opens up. Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering intense, spice- and smoke-inflected black raspberry, b...

Robert Parker writes: "Chapoutier's aim is to produce an exceptionally perfumed, soft, elegant cuvee of Cote Rotie, and a luxury cuvee that takes Cote Rotie's black-raspberry, exotic fruitiness and elegance to the limits of intensity, a la Marcel Guigal's La Mouline."
Price: $269.99

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Cote Rotie La Landonne is a perfect wine ... at least for my palate. Its saturated black/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary nose of smoke, incense, tapenade, creosote, blackberry, and currant aromas. It is densely packed with blackberry, truffle, chocolate, and leather-like flavors. The wine possesses high tannin, but perfect harmony, impeccable balance, and gorgeous integration of acidity, alcohol, and tannin. It is a tour de force in winemaking. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025. (RP)" (04/...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Just about perfection in a glass, the 2017 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde is more plush and sexy compared to the La Landonne and has a beautiful, incredibly floral character as well as notes of crème de cassis, mulberries, black raspberries, spice, and new crushed violets. Full-bodied, seamless, and polished, it’s an incredible expression of the Côte Blonde and has its own singular character." (12/2019) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The barrel of the 2017 Cote Rotie La Cote Blonde I tasted from was bursting with flowers, ...

90 points Wine Spectator: "Solid, with green olive, briar and bay notes studding a core of steeped black cherry and blackberry fruit. A briary feel gives the finish a grippy edge. Drink now through 2021. 198 cases imported. (JM, WEb Only-2015)"

Decanter: "Clear cherry aroma, a note of bacon and light cocoa. Very vibrant palate and lovely acidity with nice tannins. Needs time to fill out. Drinking Window 2015-2030. (Blind tasted by Gearoid Devaney MS, John Livingstone-Learmonth, Matt Walls)" (01/2015)
Price: $64.99

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Scheduled to be bottled just after this visit, the 2015 Côte Rôtie Château D'Ampuis reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of smoked black fruits, caramelized blackcurrants, leady herbs, ground pepper, and earth. It's deep, rich, massively concentrated, and a powerhouse of a wine that’s going to need bottle age, but wow, what a wine! The big news at the Guigal estate is the purchase of Domaine de Nalys in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The family has always wanted an estate in the South, and Nalys is an unr...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I give Rostaing's 2015 Cote Rotie La Cote Blonde the slightest of edges over the La Landonne for its more aromatic, floral nose. It shows that same unfathomable depth and richness married to a sense of weightlessness and elegance that marks the La Landonne, and it also shows those wonderfully pure raspberry flavors. It's lush, velvety and incredibly long on the finish. Collectors fortunate enough to grab some of each will have great fun comparing the two over the next 30 years or so. (JC)" (12/2017) 98 points ...


92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting with Rene's classic Cote Rotie, the 2012 Cote Rotie Ampodium is a mostly destemmed blend from Rene's 13 different terroirs. It's aged in a combination of demi-muid and older barrels, with just 5% being new. It's smoking base cuvee that does everything right, offering up tons of sweet blackberry, wild herbs, pepper, spice and olive aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, beautifully textured and with impressive concentration, all while stay classic and elegant, it's a no-brainer purchase and will have 15-20 year...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2017 Côte Rôtie La Landonne, a magical expression of the Grand Cru terroir. Deep purple-hued with killer notes of black raspberries, bacon fat, ground herbs, and obvious minerality, this beauty is full-bodied, has ultra-fine tannins, a deep, concentrated mid-palate, and a finish that won’t quit. Do your best to hold bottles for 4-5 years. 97+" (12/2019) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Cote Rotie la Landonne looks a bit simple at the moment, but it's early days. Rich, ripe raspberry fruit muscles...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie Le Viallière isn’t part of the single vineyard boxed set and will be released on its own. After tasting it, I certainly understand why as it’s an incredible wine. Possessing awesome purity in its blackberry, blackcurrants, charcoal, meat, and dried flower aromatics, it’s full-bodied, concentrated, and sexy, yet also perfectly balanced, seamless and elegant. It’s a complete, classic Côte Rôtie that will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring and keep for two decades." (01/2018) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Features...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Cote Rotie La Belle Helene is perfection. In this vintage, Ogier cut back the barrel aging time from 32 months in largely new oak casks to 18 months. Ogier’s remarkable flexibility depending on vintage conditions and the quality of the fruit is admirable. He thinks this may be the greatest bottle of wine he has ever made, and it’s hard to disagree. An inky/purple color is followed by notes of pen ink, graphite, forest floor, licorice and abundant black and blue fruits. There is little evidence of new oa...

95 points Wine Spectator: "Features dark currant, fig and boysenberry preserve flavors that are densely concentrated and supported by authoritative grip built on graphite and cast iron accents. Ganache, black tea, singed bay leaf and juniper notes add detail and range through the finish, where latent minerality lurks in reserve. (JM)" (11/2019) 94 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, violet, olive paste and smoky minerals, with a suave floral topnote. Offers densely packed black and blue fruit, floral pastille...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Am I being stingy in only awarding Rostaing's 2015 Cote Rotie la Landonne 99+ points? This is a tremendous wine, showing immense richness and power without any apparent weight. Raspberries flood the palate in waves, accented by various spices in a wine that's intensely tannic yet never hard or astringent. Breathtaking stuff. (JC) 99+" (12/2017) 97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie La Landonne is more tannic and structured, with the smoky, meaty, mineral-laced bouquet I always find in this terroir. Black,...

93 points James Suckling: "There’s a lot to like in this 2016. Pepper-dusted, red berries, strawberries, red plums and raspberries. Refined herbs on offer, too. The palate is succulent, fleshy and soft with tangy, red berries and cherries. This has a more approachable feel than the Reserve bottling from here. " (07/2018) 93 points Vinous: "Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Assertive blackberry, candied licorice, bacon and potpourri scents are complemented by a smoky mineral overtone. Seamless and energetic in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated dark fruit a...

93 points Vinous: "right purple. Assertive raspberry, licorice pastille and potpourri scents are complemented by a lively mineral overlay. Seamless and focused on the palate, offering deeply concentrated red/blue fruit liqueur, candied violet flavors and an energizing jolt of exotic spices. Finishes with strong mineral, smoke and red fruit character, with well-knit tannins and very good tenacity.(JR)" (04/2018) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ogier's entry-level Côte Rôtie is concentrated, ripe and rich this vintage. The 2015 Cote Rotie Villa...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The saturated dark ruby/purple color is followed by an awesome nose that offers copious quantities of sweet black fruits, flowers, toasty new oak, and smoky bacon fat. In the mouth there is superb concentration, a sweet, expansive texture, and a mind-boggling, long finish. This lavishly rich Cote Rotie, which is already delicious, is capable of lasting for 10-15 years. (RP)" (12/1996) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A muscular wine that still achieves great elegance, with restrained ripe plum, tobacco and tar flavor...

97 points Decanter: "There is no better way to develop an understanding of the different expressions of the single vineyard sites of Côte-Rôtie than by tasting from barrel in Jean-Paul Jamet's underground bunker - especially in a vintage like 2016. 'You smell the terroir first in 2016; in 2015, you smell the vintage first,' he says. Whereas his wonderful 2015 has a lush, easy-going charm, the 2016 is more tailored and precise. Moving from Les Lezards to Gerine, then Fongeant, Le Plomb and La Landonne, each barrel has its own marked character. It's clear ...


This 3-Pack OWC contains one bottle each of Guigal's Côte-Rôtie selections from 2009: La Landonne, La Turque, and La Mouline. All received a 100-Point score from Robert Parker in December of 2012. The La Landonne bottling recently received an updated 100-point perfect score from Jeb Dunnuck: "I’ve been lucky to have drunk close to a case of the 2009 Côte Rôtie La Landonne, and if there’s a more perfect Syrah out there, I don’t know of it. Revealing a vivid ruby/purple color, it delivers a spectacular bouquet of crème de cassis, smoked meats, graphite, s...
Price: $1,799.00

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The first vintage for this cuvée and from relatively younger vines planted in 2010, the 2015 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde is another gorgeous wine from this young superstar winemaker. Offering beautiful notes of black raspberries, black currants, spring flowers, violets, and incense, with more minerality and deep Syrah meatiness with air, this full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, finesse-driven Côte Rôtie has sweet tannin and a layered, seamless texture that just keeps on giving. Due to its purity of fruit and incredible tannin qualit...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the treats when tasting through the profound Côte Rôties made by Marcel Guigal was the opportunity to taste all of the bottled 1995's. Reviewed in previous issues, they are even better from bottle than they were during their upbringing (a characteristic of many Guigal wines). The 1995 Côte Rôtie Château d'Ampuis is the stuff of legends and is every bit as compelling as readers might expect. This single vineyard wine will have at least 15 years of longevity.(RMP)" (10/1999) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's Inte...

2016 Delas Freres "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie (Previously $190) (Previously $190)
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Spectator: "Alluring, with warm fruitcake and black tea aromatics leading off for a lush and warm core of crushed plum, cherry reduction and blackberry pâte de fruit flavors. Despite the showy fruit detail, there’s a solid iron underpinning, pretty floral notes and bright energy throughout. (JM)" (04/2019) 95 points Decanter: "The first vintage of this wine was in 1997. It has resonant Côte-Rôtie aromatics; sylvan, resinous, and more vinous than many. It is medium to full-bodied, with generous, concentrated, sweetly-ripe fruit, very fin...

97 points Decanter: "Aged in demi-muids - a maximum of 10% new oak - with no destemming. It has that austere mineral character on the nose so typical of La Landonne. It is rounded, with good concentration and ripeness, matched with ample, piercing acidity and bristling with fine, fresh tannins. Its intensity comes primarily from its structure and mineral content rather than the fruit, and it is incredibly energetic and lively on the palate. Powerful and very well balanced in a structural, chiselled style, this is in an altogether different league from hi...

95 points James Suckling: "This comes from the schist section, in the north of the appellation, and has a very complex and spicy edge to the dark berries and cherries. The palate has a succulent, savory and very powerful, expressive feel with latent spices and roasted meat, through a very intense core of black fruits. Ripe grapes and whole bunches here. Intense and juicy with strapping tannins. Drink over the next decade or more." (10/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Notes of smoked meat and cold fireplace mark the nose of Saint Cosme...

94 points Wine Spectator: "This is very solidly built, nearly bristling with briary energy along the edges while the core of steeped plum, cherry and currant fruit cruises through. Mouthwatering savory, tobacco and olive notes score the finish, all set against a lovely floral accent in the background. (JM)" (02/2019) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the 2016s and starting with the 2016 Côte Rôtie Ampodium, this beautiful, silky, incredibly elegant wine has classic notes of red and black fruits, spring flowers, hints of bacon fat as well as green olive...

Domaine Clos de la Bonnette was purchased in 1992 by wife and husband team, Isabelle Guiller and Henri Montabonnet. Isabelle had her eye on this abandoned vineyard site for many years before they moved forward. The main reason that the site remained unoccupied was because the hillsides were in complete disarray, as many of the stone retaining walls had collapsed over the decades due to neglect. Restoring this property could only be done as a labor of love, not a commercial venture. Isabelle and Henri did most of the restoration themselves, rebuilding the...

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Similarly colored, the purple-hued 2016 Côte Rôtie La Brocarde incorporates 5% Viognier and comes from the La Brocarde lieu-dit and will see 26 months in new barrels. It offers more blue fruits, violets, and liquid rock characteristics, full body, a deep, stacked mid-palate, and building tannins. It's a primordial barrel sample that's going to require 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20 years." (12/2018) 94 points Vinous: "Vivid purple. Intense blackberry, cherry preserve, licorice pastille, bacon and vanilla scents ar...

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Cote Rotie Ampodium shows an extra level of concentration when compared to the 2016, without sacrificing the gorgeous aromas of violets, raspberries and tea leaves. It's medium to full-bodied, finishing silky and long. (JC) " (10/2018) 92-93 points Vinous: "Brilliant violet color. An expansive bouquet evokes ripe black/blue fruits, potpourri and olive paste. A lively mineral nuance builds in the glass. Shows impressive depth and energy on the palate, offering sappy dark berry, spicecake and violet f...

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie La Turque (93% Syrah and 7% Viognier) is straight-up thrilling stuff and offers a massive, full-bodied style that stays seamless, incredibly elegant, and perfectly balanced. It doesn’t have the sheer weight or exotic quality of the La Mouline, yet gives up textbook crème de cassis, crushed rocks, violets, and graphite aromas and flavors. With fine tannins and a stacked mid-palate, it’s going to require 5-7 years of bottle age." (12/2018) 98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The potentially perfec...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from a lieu-dit in the northern part of the appellation, the 2017 Côte Rôtie Montmain (100% Syrah) reveals a deep purple hue as well as terrific notes of smoked black fruits, ground pepper, graphite, and charred meats. Just a classic Syrah from schist soils, with full-bodied power and richness, it has a stacked mid-palate, plenty of structure, and a great finish." (12/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Cote Rotie Lieu-Dit Montmain relies more on elegance than power to impress. Delicate notes of cr...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Côte Rôtie La Landonne is a candidate for the wine of the vintage and offers everything you could want from Côte Rôtie. Revealing a deep purple color as well as a gorgeous perfume of black raspberries, blackberries, toasted spice, violets, and spring flowers, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, no hard edges, and ample yet sweet tannins. This remarkable effort has loads of richness and intensity yet stays weightless and elegant. As I wrote in the barrel reviews, it's atypically charming and forward, yet it's goi...

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2016 Domaine Pichat "Les Grandes Places" Côte-Rôtie (93JD, 93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fermented with the stems, the medium to full-bodied 2016 Cote Rotie Les Grandes Places reflects that to some extent in its complex aromas of bay leaf, mint, green olives and raspberries. Like the other 2016s from Pichat, it's firm and tannic, yet it seems to have the requisite concentration to age well. Drink 2022-2030. (JC)" (10/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1997 & 2000 Ogier Côte-Rôtie Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 1997 Ogier Côte-Rôtie ((88-90RP)) and 1-bottle of 2000 Ogier Côte-Rôtie (90ST). Of the 1997 Ogier Côte-Rôtie,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 1997 Cote Rotie may turn out to be outstanding. It displays a deep purple color, a sweet nose of smoke, pine needles, blackberry/cassis fruit, and a floral note. The wine has medium body, outstanding purity, a low acid, opulent texture, and admirable depth and length. Although some tannin is present, this beauty will drink well young, and last for 12-15 years. (RP)" (02/1999)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1998 Ogier Côte-Rôtie (90RP, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ogier's regular cuvee of Cote Rotie sees about 25-30% new oak. It spends 18 months in barrel, and over 70% of the grapes emerge from their holdings on the Cote Blonde. The 1998 Cote Rotie exhibits scents and flavors of charred earth, smoke, minerals, and cassis. The wine is full-bodied, rich, and dense, with abundant tannin in the finish. The French might call it a true vin de garde. It needs 4-5 years of cellaring, and will keep for 15-18+ years. This wine is bottled with no filtration. (RP)" (02/2001)
Starting Bid: $145.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1999 Ogier Côte-Rôtie (95RP, 94WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest Cote Roties Ogier has made (and he agrees) are the 1999s. The fabulous, opaque purple-colored 1999 Cote Rotie, which spent two years in wood (30% new), reveals a glorious bouquet of bacon fat, creme de cassis, licorice, violets, and spice box. It is full-bodied, with sweet tannin, great presence in the mouth, and a knock-out finish. Although it will be approachable in its youth, 3-4 more years of cellaring will be beneficial. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018. Michel Ogier and his son, Stephane, are producing spectacular wines. The only problem is that production is small. As I indicated last year, Ogier's 1999s are magical. (RP)" (04/2002)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 E. Guigal "La Turque" Côte-Rôtie (95RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Côte Rôtie La Turque possesses a dark, saturated ruby/purple color, aromas of caramel, vanillin, and smoked cherry jam, medium to full body, outstanding ripeness, a plush, surprisingly soft finish, and loads of glycerin.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 E. Guigal "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie ((97-100JD), 100JS, (98-100RP), 99WS, 97VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Of all the terrific single-vineyard Cote Roties I tasted at Guigal this year, I’m most confident that this wine will ultimately reach perfection after bottling. The 2015 Cote Rotie La Landonne is incredibly rich and concentrated, yet it remains detailed and complex, with plum and cassis flavors accented by hints of pencil shavings, espresso, black olives, roasted meat and dark chocolate. Full-bodied and solidly built, it combines that power with a velvety feel and a nearly endless finish. Wow. (JC)" (12/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Rene Rostaing "Côte Blonde" Côte-Rôtie (99RP, 96ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Truly blockbuster stuff, and a wine that will compete with the ’99 when it’s at full maturity, the 2010 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde gave up a spectacular array of sweet red and black raspberry, cassis, violets and underbrush. A full-bodied, impeccably balanced, yet concentrated and massive Côte Rôtie, it has world-class tannin quality, a stacked mid-palate and blockbuster length. It will need another decade to show some maturity, and hold nicely through 2040. (JD)" (02/2015)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1996 E. Guigal "Château d'Ampuis" Côte-Rotie (91ST, 90RP, 90WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby-red. Complex nose combines black raspberry, black cherry, tar, licorice, pepper and smoky oak. Rich on entry but already beginning to shut down following the bottling. Fresh acids give the wine excellent grip. As with the above wine, the tannins are not especially noticeable today. Quite long on the palate. (ST) 91+" (01/2000)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1998 V. Gasse Côte Rôtie. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby. Aromas of kirsch, licorice, anise, eucalyptus and pungent herbs. Thick in texture but the flavors are greener than those of the Brune. Tarry nuance. This comes across as quite tannic, even though there plenty of underlying density. Seems a bit more evolved than the Brune. Gasse says this is always the better of his two bottlings, but in '98 (and in '99 as well) I preferred the balance of the Cote Brune. (ST)" (01/2001)

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Rene Rostaing Côte-Rôtie (93WS, 92RP). Wine Spectator: "This still has some time to go, showing a slightly aggressive edge to the black pepper, olive, tobacco and currant confiture notes. Surprisingly dark and grippy through the finish, with lingering tobacco and black tea notes, though this really harmonizes nicely as it airs, so decant or cellar further. An impressive showing for the basic cuvée.--1999 Côte-Rôtie non-blind retrospective. (JM, Web Only-2008)"

Bid on this bottle of 1994 E. Guigal "La Turque" Côte-Rôtie (96RP, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "(tasting note from 10/1997) The great glories of this house are its Cote Roties, of which there are now five separate offerings. The single-vineyard 1994s were singing loudly when I saw them in July. All of them scored significantly higher than they did during the two previous years, which is not unusual as Guigal's upbringing (elevage) of the wines results in better examples in the bottle than in cask. All three wines flirt with a perfect score. At this tasting, they reminded me of Guigal's 1982s - opulent, sumptuously-textured, forward, rich, precocious, flattering wines that will drink well throughout their lives. The exotic 1994 Cote Rotie La Turque exhibits a dense purple color, and a fabulously-scented nose of licorice, Asian spices, truffles, minerals, and gobs of black fruits. Full-bodied, with great richness, a multi-layered personality, and an exotic, overripe character,
Starting Bid: $220.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2001 Domaine Jamet Côte-Rôtie (95RP, 93ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I loved the 2001 Cote Rotie, but it's not for the instant gratification crowd, and even at age 14, it still has a wall of acidity and tannin. Compared to the '91 by Jean-Paul, it's a serious, medium to full-bodied, concentrated and structured Cote Rotie that has lots of cassis, currants, pepper, smoked meats and game. Possessing high acidity, beautiful concentration and ample underlying structure, give bottles another 2-4 years of cellaring and enjoy through 2031. (JD)" (09/2015)
