External Reviews for Pierre Gaillard Cote-Rotie Rose Pourpre
The 2005 Cote Rotie Rose Pourpre, from the Rozier site on pure schist, is fabulous. Deep ruby/purple with notes of blackberries, anise, pain grille, tar, and flowers, the wine is full-bodied, pure, ripe, intensely concentrated, and superbly etched an... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2005 Pierre Gaillard Cote Rotie Rose Pourpre 750ml
"Not surprisingly, the 2005s are tannic longer-term wines with a style not<br/>dissimilar from the Cote Roties of 1995, which were tannic and backward, yet<br/>for the most part have never come around. As for the top cuvee, the dense, dark<br/>ruby/purple 2005 Cote Rotie Rose Pourpre displays smoky, olive notes intermixed<br/>with spicy new oak, creme de cassis, licorice, and incense. The wine is<br/>full-bodied, powerful, and very backward and tannic. The purity is there, the<br/>texture is there, so I suspect this is one that will come through in good form<br/>and possibly be better than my initial rating."<br/><br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Apr -2007)
