2018 Côte-Rôtie, Domaine Bott

When we taste a wine like this, with such intense and eloquent expression, it is all the indication we need to follow an exciting new domaine. The 2018 is a deep plummy purple, with intense aromas of cassis, pepper and thyme. The palate is built around a bed of sweet, silky tannins, giving a smooth and dense structure, This is intense, dramaic, and compelling. Like all great Côte-Rôtie, with a few years in bottle this Syrah will fully unfurl.

2018 Côte-Rôtie, Domaine Bott
Domaine Bott

Kiwi Graeme and local Julie met working for Stéphane Ogier. After a decade spent working for one of the greatest winemakers of Côte Rôtie, the young couple, affectionately known as “Les Kiwis d’Ampuis”, decided to strike out on their own. They own six hectares across Côte Rôtie, Condrieu, and St Joseph that they are busily planting. With the success of their first few vintages they have managed to upgrade winemaking facilities from their small garage to a neighbour’s slightly larger one. These wines are handcrafted, and the early results suggest a bright future for this new domaine.
