2009 Côte-Rôtie (France)
This incredibly concentrated wine is simultaneously floral, savory, and fruit-driven.
The nose is practically concave, drawing you down into the dark, arresting nose of blueberry essence, savory meats, fresh lilacs, woodland berries and pepper. Yes, it’s that complex despite its youth. Full of vim and vigor and almost black in color, this incredibly concentrated wine is simultaneously floral, savory, and fruit-driven, its flavors effortlessly mingling in an incredibly transparent structure. A pitch-perfect and stunning wine, but again, patience is required.
