Cote Rotie la Boisselee Louis Barruol 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is packed, with a very dark, ample toasty core of black currant, plum sauce and licorice snap notes woven tightly, while fruitcake, violet and maduro tobacco notes hold sway on the grippy finish. This will need some time to round into form. Best from 2013 through 2023...93" WS 9/11 "Youthful purple. Aromas of cherry pit, cassis and espresso on the slow-to-open nose. Deeply pitched dark fruit flavors show excellent clarity and pick up exotic floral pastille and spice character with air. Firm tannins adds grip and shape to the very long, chewy finish. Aeration helps this concentrated wine open up somewhat but it really needs at least a few years of bottle age...92+" IWC 3/12
