Winemaker's Notes

The 2011 had an impressive destiny: quite light at the beginning, it had some austerity which is usually the typical Cote-Rotie enemy. Then the elevage revealed a very good vintage, very intense and balanced. Finally 2011 looks like 2010: this is a real Cote Rotie with real aromas of Cote Rotie and a delicious texture. Cheminee soot, bacon, violet, graphite, cold ash, ancient roses, and licorice. Bottled without filtration.

Critical Acclaim

"Shows good vivacity, with a mouthwatering anise note underpinning the layers of plum sauce and blackberrry confiture. Offers lots of bouncy spice and a brambly feel through the finish, while an iron accent lurks in the background. "
93 Points

"Inky purple. Vibrant aromas of blackberry liqueur, woodsmoke and bitter chocolate, along with a seductive floral topnote. Dense, lush and sweet, with a seamless texture and very good focus. Aeration brings out a bright mineral element that carries through a very long, floral-accented finish with a whisper of tannins.
Range: 90-92"
