2014 Côte-Rôtie

Lionel Faury

2014 Côte-Rôtie Lionel Faury - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $62.00

The magic of vintage variation is that there is something for everyone—a phenomenon accentuated by 2014 and 2015, virtually opposite vintages in the Rhône Valley. While we wait for the deep, rich, structured 2015s to be released—and for them to reach maturity, which may take a bit longer—we can already start to dig into the lovely 2014s. The wines are wonderfully expressive with approachable structure, offering immediate pleasure for those who value traits like delicacy and elegance. The cool-vintage Syrah aromatics here (flowers, black olive, black pepper) are unmistakable Côte-Rôtie, while the palate is round and supple with extremely silky tannins. It is about as downright swallowable as a young Côte-Rôtie can get. –Anthony Lynch
