This is classic Côte Rôtie, from a blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Viognier from vineyards across the breadth of the Côte. These red and white grapes are co-planted, being picked and fermented together to give a deeply purple red wine that has intensely perfumed, almost peachy, spicy, fresh cherry aromas. The palate is intense, still young and tightly woven, with impressive depth and structure. Tannins are silky smooth and beautifully fresh (for drinking 2021-2030+).
