2019 Côte-Rôtie Les Triotes, Domaine Garon

This comes from four neighbouring lieux dits on the Côte Blonde: Lancement, La Triote, Le Combard and Le Mollard. They share a high proportion of white schist in their soils, making for an intense, savoury, and long expression. The fruit concentration is impressive here, and the tannins are so well formed: punchy but well executed.

2019 Côte-Rôtie Les Triotes, Domaine Garon
Domaine Garon

The Garon family have been landowners in Ampuis for 500 years, but it wasn’t until 1982 that they started tending to the neglected vines on their land. Releasing their first cuvée in 1995, Jean-Francois Garon observed with little irony that "it wasn't bad for the vineyards to rest a hundred years between plantings." Today, this traditional producer makes three wines from the Côte-Rôtie’s Côte Blonde and one from the Côte Brune, all mostly destemmed and aged in a mix of new and older French oak.
