2015 Côte-Rôtie Lancement, Domaine Garon

Only produced by the domaine since 2013, it comes from a tiny parcel of the famed Lancement vineyard. This feels incredibly young straight from barrel, but the potential is plain to see. There’s freshness and juicy fruit to the intensely structured palate.

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

TASTING NOTES

From a vineyard just down the slope from Les Rochins, the 2015 Côte Rôtie Lancement is a possibly profound wine that offers massive notes of blackberries, cassis, toasty oak and hints of vanilla bean in a full-bodied, voluptuous, downright sexy style. Brought up in 50% new barrels, give this blockbuster Côte Rôtie 4-5 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following two decades
