Jean-Michel Gerin Côte-Rôtie 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Jean Michel's father, Alfred, was the mayor of Ampuis and one of the great<br/>promotors of Côte Rôtie in days which were far from halcyon, a time<br/>indeed when many of the vignerons were tempted to revert to growing fruit and<br/>olives. Jean Michel, by turns enigmatic, whimsical and gifted, is one of the<br/>leading vignerons of what is now a modern and highly successful appellation.<br/>His Champin Le Seigneur adds 10% of limestone Viognier to the schistous<br/>bed-rock of Northern Syrah. The 2005 is concentrated, spicy and dense, with<br/>notes of sousbois, tea and licorice to embellish the very fine fruit. <br/>(Simon Field MW - BBR Buyer)

On the nose.. Wet forest with some subtle gamey meat mix with dense fruit and spice. Opulent, full bodied and tightly wound in the mouth with the lingering of pepperiness on the pallate through a long finish.
