This has a little sauvage note peeking out, with bay leaf and game accents adding range to the rich core of crushed plum and blackberry fruit. (JM)
Impressive blackberry, dark spices and tarry nuances on the nose with a wealth of interest and youthful complexity. The palate has plenty of star anise, dark cherry and blackberry flavor with orange rind, too. Smooth tannins with power. Best from 2020.
Glass-staining ruby. Heady, exotically perfumed red and dark berry scents are complicated by suggestions of star anise, violet and cola. Sweet, seamless and penetrating in the mouth, offering intense boysenberry and black raspberry flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. Rich yet lithe, with strong closing thrust and silky, even tannins lending framework and gentle grip.
He also makes a traditional style of Côte Rôtie that’s not destemmed and is brought up in barrel (I believe mostly older barrels). The 2015 Côte Rôtie is loaded with gamy and meaty characteristics, as well as blackcurrants, raspberries, olive tapenade and loads of peppery spice. Full-bodied, layered and beautifully ripe, forget bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following decade or more. (JD)
