Red wine. Côte-Rôtie, Northern Rhône, France. Sustainable. 100% Syrah. The Côte Rozier bottling from the Bonnefond brothers hails from forty-five year-old syrah vines and is raised in twenty-five to thirty percent new casks each year. The 2014 Côte Rozier comes in at a cool thirteen percent octane and offers up a superb bouquet of cassis, grilled meats, dark soil tones, woodsmoke, biter chocolate, gentle notes of pepper and a hint of the nuttiness to come with further bottle age. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very refined in profile, with a lovely core of fruit, superb soil signature, ripe, suave tannins and excellent focus and grip on the very long and complex finish. This is very classy juice and I have a gut feeling that this is one of those wines that will seemingly put on weight with extended bottle age." — 92+ Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #69 (May/June 2017)
