2020 Côte-Rôtie

Lionel Faury
Discount Eligible $82.00
SOLD OUT

The fruit in Lionel’s elegant Côte-Rôtie is higher-toned than in the earthier, spicier Saint Joseph, and the finish, with the wine’s velvet tannins, is slightly longer. This is the result of the Côte’s steeper slopes and schist soils, as well as a splash of Viognier, which is co-planted and co-fermented with the Syrah. Still, like with the Saint Joseph Vieilles Vignes, you’ll get those irresistible notes of black olive, succulent black cherries, and spices.

Inspiring Thirst

A good doctor prescribed the wine of Nuits-Saint-Georges to the Sun King, Louis XIV, when he suffered an unknown maladie. When the king’s health was restored the tasty remedy enjoyed a vogue at court. Lord, send me a doctor like that!
