Cote Rotie Cote Rotie Vieilles Vignes Rouge Rouge Coteaux Eric Texier R 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet animal notes greet the nose followed by grilled meat, rose petal and spicy green cardamom seed and olive notes. The aromatics are really effusive here, adding in sour plum and red berried fruit with air. In the mouth, this is loose on entry, then it firms up quickly in the mouth with super fine-grained tannins and light, aromatic spicy red fruit in the mouth. The mid-palate turns a touch hollow at times but when the fruit does pop, with those oily seed and green olive notes, this shows excellent Syrah typicity and wonderful transparency right through the stony finish. This is fresh and well balanced, so 5-10 years in the cellar ought to allow this to reveal its true depth. Texier’s wines have generally surprised me on the upside so I’m willing to bet that this will be excellent. 90pts
