100% Serine (ancient Syrah) planted on schist terroir. Aged 15 months in new oak barrels and bottled without filtration. "Côte Rôtie is often a good subject: its inimitable personality makes people talk! This terroir is the most extraordinary one in the northern Rhone, I'm convinced about this. We keep going with our work on the Ampuis terroirs and 2008 brought this great freshness we always look for. The wine is balanced and has the entire aromatic spectrum going from the empyreumatic smells ending up in the ancient roses. I know exactly when to open a bottle of Côte-Rôtie: it has to be shared with the right person at the right time. It's always a time of joy which gives some meaning to life. This bottle of 2008 is very classical, it's not heavy, it's straightforward, it gets precision, it's open, aromatic and tender. The way 2004 tastes at the moment makes me think that some vintages deserve to get a fundamental right: be judged only after a couple of years, when they get their proper expression. Bacon, cold ash, graphite, coal, violet, rose."
"Crisp, but fresh and lively, boasting some snap to the tobacco leaf, pepper, blackberry and olive notes. Lightly firm, but well-focused on the finish. Best from 2011 through 2015."

The Rhone appellation furthest north, the translation of Cote Rotie is roasted slope, named after the region's very steep, south facing slopes that have ideal exposure to the sun. There are two main slopes, Cote Brunes & Cote Blondes. They are just as they sound, with the darker Brunes soils consisting of rich clay and iron, producing firm and robust wine.

(seh-RAH/shee-RAHZ) It's a Smokin' Grape Syrah and Shiraz - same grape, different name. It's a popular and adept variety, growing in multiple regions and creating many different styles of wine.
