COTE ROTIE

Regular price $104.99

2018 Clusel-Roch Cote-Rotie Vialliere
Rhone, France | $104.99

94-95 Vinous
Aromas of fresh black/blue fruits, pungent flowers, olive and allspice on the incisive nose. Weighty yet lively black currant, bitter cherry and violet pastille flavors show fine delineation and take on a smoky mineral nuance on the back half. Steadily building tannins shape an extremely long, penetrating finish that echoes the floral and mineral notes. The balance of power and finesse here is pretty impressive.


Terroir: Localities 'Vialliere', located north of the Cote-Rotie appellation, on soils of ferrous mica schits facing South East.

Grape Variety: Massal selection Syrah - old Ampuis series

Vine Age: 30

Vinification: Harvested by hand and in small boxes. Careful sorting is carried out in the vineyard by the pickers. When they arrive at the cellar, the grapes are vatted by gravity and partially destemmed. Fermentation is done with indigenous yeasts. During vinification, punching down and pumping over follow one another. A moderate temperature is maintained for a very gentle extraction and devouring occurs 3 to 4 weeks following tasting.

Aging: 2 years in oak barrels - 25% new, fine-grained French oak benefiting from a 4-year drying period.

Tasting: Fine and elegant with good persistence. Complex nose of red and black fruits, and spices. On wines at their peak, aromas of undergrowth and toasted tobacco. Pair with a grilled meat, or duck. For older vintages pair with game.

Certified organic.
