EVS -- Cote Rotie Tasting: Deep, dark and aromatic, more masculine and serious than sexy d'Ampuis. Layers of flavors reveal coffee, roasted nuts, cherry, chocolate, swirled smoke. Not in love with the nose -- hint of cooked fruit. Believe this to be 100% syrah. Excellent, but by no means a perfect. Needs time.
Guigal: in the cotes blond. 1ha total. 42 months in new oak. No fining no filtering. No Viognier. 100% Stem retention. Very dark and deep fruit. Purple, plum fruit tones. A touch confected. Some spice cake notes. Oldest Cote Rotie going back to 1908. Vines over 100yrs old.
Minerality, fresh sweet red and black cherries, blueberries, smoke and roasted vanilla bean scents are in the open. Thick, rich, concentrated and intense, there is a beautiful sense of purity to the fruit as it seamlessly coats your mouth, palate, teeth and gums with pleasure.
A beautiful nose of dark fruit, chocolate, coffee and wet stone. Outstanding sweetness on the perfume. Primary and focused on the palate with nice floral notes. Extremely ripe fruit combined with a sexy glassy texture. Long, pure finish. This will be amazing in time and you can already enjoy it.
