Saint Cosme Côte Rôtie 2018
Louis Barruol also makes a super refined but firm Côte-Rôtie from pure Sérine (old clone Syrah) sourced from top vineyards Le Plomb, Nève, Besset and La Vialière, all located north of Ampuis on a terroir of micaschiste. This wine matures for 12 months in 40% new oak barrels and is bottled unfiltered. Every year, this is an absolutely delicious and complex wine with a long life..
Jeb Dunnuck: “One of the gems in the Northern Rhône lineup is the 2018 Côte Rôtie, which, as with all of Louis’ wines,wasn’t destemmed and was brought up in 30-40% new oak. Stunning aromatics of black raspberries, olivetapenade, ground pepper, violets, and assorted meat notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, opulent,seamless Côte Rôtie that has a smoking good texture. Count me impressed.” 92-95/100
