Saint Cosme 2015 Cote Rotie

Description

"This has a little sauvage note peeking out, with bay leaf and game accents adding range to the rich core of crushed plum and blackberry fruit. A warm cast iron detail drives the finish, and latent grip allows everything to linger. Distinctive in profile and should age well. Best from 2020 through 2035. 587 cases made." Wine Spectator 95 Points

"(50% new oak): Glass-staining ruby. Heady, exotically perfumed red and dark berry scents are complicated by suggestions of star anise, violet and cola. Sweet, seamless and penetrating in the mouth, offering intense boysenberry and black raspberry flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. Rich yet lithe, with strong closing thrust and silky, even tannins lending framework and gentle grip." Josh Raynolds 92-94 Points 

"He also makes a traditional style of Côte Rôtie that’s not destemmed and is brought up in barrel (I believe mostly older barrels). The 2015 Côte Rôtie is loaded with gamy and meaty characteristics, as well as blackcurrants, raspberries, olive tapenade and loads of peppery spice. Full-bodied, layered and beautifully ripe, forget bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following decade or more." Robert Parker 91-93+ Points
