With this Cote Rotie 2009, it as if the 2007 is back! How similar! We find everything we like in a Côte Rôtie: freshness, balance, serine's relief, the deep and complex aromas which allies finesse and purity of the fruit. The strength and the terroir are
easy to understand, simply because it is obviously nice. The color (blood) is characteristic, the tannins are feminine, the structure is not over-weighted, and the aromas are so easy to identify on a blind.
