7 Sep, 2017 – Super peppery, dried red plums are bathed in fine-ground dark spices and toasty, cedary woody aromas. The palate brings very plush, even and supple tannins that carry fresh, ripe raspberry and red plum flavors in a laid-back, attractive style.
Bright violet. Powerful dark fruit, violet pastille, olive and candied licorice aromas are lifted and sharpened by peppery spice and smoky mineral notes. Coats the palate with nicely concentrated, smoke-tinged boysenberry, cherry liqueur and spicecake flavors that become livelier with air. Shows impressive clarity and seamless texture and finishes very long and sappy; chewy tannins build slowly and fold into the sweet dark fruit. (JR)
Especially for the vintage, this is chock-full of lightly mulled plum, black currant and raspberry fruit laced liberally with singed alder and juniper threads. Lots of smoldering tobacco and dark tea notes through the finish, with a sanguine element as well. (JM, Web-2017)
All the 2013 Côte Rôties were tasted out of bottle. Starting out, the 2013 Côte Rôtie Brune Et Blonde, the largest production cuvée, has a medium-bodied, elegant, finesse-driven style as well bright acidity. With top-notch complexity in its raspberry, flowers, peppery spice, and herbal aromas and flavors, drink it anytime over the coming decade.
