Generational producer with top notch plots on the slopes of Cote-Rotie and all farmed organically. The daughter in charge here now, and pushing some of the boundaries while adhering to tradition. A combination of vineyards here.
Aromatic, soft, brooding but lighter weight red of dark berry and plum fruits, savoury spice, a little anise and cola character. Such even, supple flow, flavoursome to a point but also fresh and even with the sense of ripeness, showing dried fruit and spice going on and on. Tannins are woven perfectly into the body of the wine but a guiding force here, dense and building through the nicely chewy-dry finish. Pedigree stuff, and feels unadorned and excellent. - The Wine Front
