Cote Rotie Cote Blonde Rene Rostaing 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Cote Rotie Cote Blonde comes close to perfection. Again, 2-4% co-fermented Viognier is blended with Syrah, and the bouquet offers up beautiful aromas of spring flowers, sweet forest floor, black raspberries, white peaches and kirsch. Seductive and full-bodied with velvety tannin, an endlessly constructed texture and huge length, this prodigious Cote Rotie should age effortlessly ...98" WA 12/12 "Deep ruby. Pungent, heady aromas and flavors of black raspberry, incense, black pepper and potpourri. Enters with an intriguing vivacity and lightness, then gains weight and structure through the mid-palate, picking up strong mineral and spice notes. Really stains the palate but there's no excess weight here. Fine-grained tannins add shape to the strikingly long, juicy, intensely floral finish...95-97" WA 04/12
