We want what we can’t have. It’s a familiar adage, and it certainly holds true in the wine world. Certain wines, either because of price or scarcity or both, are simply out of reach for most of us. Côte-Rôtie, being a tiny appellation, has its share of these types of wines, but it also has Lionel Faury’s outrageously good 2015 Côte-Rôtie. It’s solid and flavorful without being heavy, with dark chewy fruit and intense minerality in equal measure. He co-ferments a bit of Viognier along with the Syrah and it adds a gorgeous floral element to the nose. It’s world class, and there’s enough for everyone to have a few bottles (or a case)! –Dustin Soiseth
