2015 Côte-Rôtie Cuvée Classique, Clusel Roch

We tasted each of the constituent parts of Guillaume’s Côte-Rôtie, and each impressed us with individuality, complexity and precision. But here, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and this is a benchmark Côte-Rôtie. It’s floral but intense, with spice and a mineral texture, and beautifully ripe fruit.

Due to tiny quantities and high demand this wine is limited to 12 bottles per customer.

TASTING NOTES

... the classic 2015 Côte Rôtie Classique incorporates 4% Viognier and is brought up in 15% new barrels. Its inky purple color is followed by straight up smokin’ good notes of black olives, spring flowers, black raspberries and graphite. It has full-bodied richness, building tannin and a great texture, all pointing to an outstanding wine that will evolve gracefully.
