The 2015 Côte Rôtie Les Pierrelles shows its southern roots (it’s from the more granite portions of the southern end of Côte Rôtie) with a pure, elegant, silky style that’s hard to resist. Black raspberries, spiced meats, dried flowers, and forest floor notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, pretty, downright elegant 2015 that can be drunk anytime over the coming 10-15 years.
(aged for a year in oak barrels, 20 percent of them new) Inky ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe blackberry, passion fruit, licorice and potpourri, and a mineral nuance adds vivacity. Sweet, seamless and expansive in the mouth, offering sappy, deeply concentrated red and blue fruit flavors and a touch of peach pit. Violet pastille and blueberry notes cling tenaciously on the youthfully tannic, penetrating finish.(JR)
Despite the warm, concentrated nature of the vintage, the 2015 Cote Rotie Domaine des Pierrelles shows remarkable silkiness and finesse. Smoky notes frame raspberry fruit in this wine that seems almost too gentle to have come from such a rugged landscape. In its elegance, it reminds me of a ripe Burgundy from Chambolle-Musigny. (JC)
