2012 Côte Rôtie “La Boisselée”

Barruol / Lynch

2012 Côte Rôtie “La Boisselée” Barruol / Lynch - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



Enjoy a perfectly balanced perfume of Syrah fruit, great terroir, and a touch of new oak—one of the three barrels I selected for the blend was new. There is also a touch of Zan, the French pastille made from réglisse.
    For those who know northern Rhônes, this could only be from Côte Rôtie—not Hermitage, not Saint Joseph, Cornas, or Crozes. The moment the bouquet rises from the glass, you are in the extreme northern part of the Rhône Valley, on the way to Burgundy. I am struck by the incredible blend of Burgundian and Rhône characteristics. They express themselves in each sniff, each taste. –Kermit Lynch
