Xavier Gerard Cote Rotie 2020, 0.75L

Region: Côte Rôtie, Rhône, France
Varietal: Syrah
Classification:
Importer: Rosenthal Wine Merchant
Score: 97DM
Review: "Wonderfully fresh and expressive, with a touch of black pepper hiding among the menthol and deep, dark berry fruits. Medium- to full-bodied, this has stacks of rich, sweet berry fruit and driving acidity, then ends neat and precise. Very well-integrated oak brings a spicy complexity, but the site is more prominent than the method. Arguably not as deep as 2015, but this is nonetheless a hugely enjoyable wine. A blend of lieux-dits Le Mollard (near Côte-Blonde), La Viallière, La Brosse and La Landonne. Tasted non-blind. (Drink between 2022-2035)."
