Healthy deep crimson. A hint of oak on the nose here. Then rich and refined with more concentration than some. Masses of energy. Coiled-spring sensation. Splits the difference between classicism and modernism.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2032

A bigger, richer, more concentrated and structured wine than the Village release, the 2015 Côte Rôtie Reserve reveals a deep purple color, awesome aromatics of raspberries, spiced meats, dried herbs and toast, with full-bodied richness and ripe, yet notable tannin. Give bottles 4-5 years and enjoy over the following decade.
