    Appearance : med ruby with legs and petillance,

    On nose : high intensity, very prominent red fruit : raspberries, red current at the beginning, red flora, very fruity and blossom feeling, beautiful French oak, after an hour later, the fruitiness was gone and developed into tobacco leaves, black pepper spiciness and lichorice, I love the development.

    On palate : med + intensity flavour, med+ acidity with very significant sour raspberries, lichorice, later on it developed into very elegant tea and tobacco leaves and warm black pepper spiciness. Med+ body with very comfortable aftertaste, Med alcohol and med+ finishing.

    I can say the wine is full of elegancy. The Cote Rotie is the only place that u can find on such beautiful juice made by Syrah! It is a remarkable and unmistakable flavour where the elegancy cannot be found in new world! I recommend to all Syrah lovers and u can keep for 5 more yrs but still very enjoyable now to open ! No regrets, cheers!
