Côte Rotie "La Divine" Aoc

External Review by Palm Bay International:

/ ...good effort for the vintage...which has about 12-15% Viognier co-fermented with the Syrah. The wine has a dark ruby color, a sweet nose of spring flowers and ripe black cherry fruit, some austere tannins (vintage character), yet good ripeness, medium body, and an elegant purity.

Cote Rotie La Divine 2005 - 91 Points, International Wine Review/ Medium ruby in color, La Divine is predominantly Syrah with 5 percent Viognier. Black cherry fruit, tobacco, and licorice aromas lead to a soft, round attack and a focused palate showing clean, and beautifully integrated, flavors of spicy dark cherry and smoky tobacco. Finishes long with fine-grained tannins, cherry and smoke.

/ Medium-weight, with well-defined red plum, red currant, floral, mocha and mineral notes. Gains depth through the finish, where a cocoa note chimes in. Drink now through 2015.

/ Deep ruby. Smoky, mineral-dominated bouquet offers ripe cherry and cassis, along with cured meat, anise and dried flowers. Weightier dark berry flavors are sweetened by cola and floral pastilles, finishing with supple tannins and very good length. This is already complex and not hard at all.

/ Stylish, with cocoa powder, iron, black tea and red currant notes allied to a sleek frame. Has a tangy iron-filled finish.

/ Lots of cherry and raspberry confiture aromas and flavors, along with lush mocha and spice. Long, smoky finish shows a fine mineral edge and solid acidity too. Drink now through 2015.

Côte Rôtie La Divine 2011 - 94 Pts, Wine Review Online/ The aromas are simply gorgeous even before the wine has attained an age at which it could offer up tertiary scents--which is a testament to how good the fruit material was, and how judiciously it was oaked during the wine’s elevage. Lifted scents of violets and both red and black fruits are totally alluring, and the delicate flavors follow suit. Beautifully light and fresh for a wine from the (sometimes chunky) 2011 vintage, this just radiates elegance and class.
