2020 Côte-Rôtie “Les Roses”

Barruol / Lynch
Discount Eligible $89.00
AT CART MAX

The lion’s share of the fruit for the 2020 vintage comes from a single lieu-dit, Rosier, a narrow vineyard valley with rare geological makeup known as Bonnevaux L’Amballan. The roots here dive deep through thin sheets of fine-grained shale and clay deposits, soaking up minerals like a tonic along the way. The resulting fruit is highly concentrated and capable of producing intensely aromatic, age-worthy wines. True to form, the nose of Les Roses is pure poesy, all fruit, flowers, and fodder—black currant, rose petal and violet, antique leather. Layered and textural, this tightly bound opus will open and unfurl itself with time, be it an hour in a decanter or decades in the cellar.

Terroirs

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
