- Gaillard Cote Rotie 2012 Product #29013 (In Stock)
Proof that fine Cote Rotie does not have to be either huge or stern in order to be delicious. Very Burgundian, elegant, and pure.
"Also solid, the classic 2012 Cote Rotie (which incorporated 10% Viognier) is made in a lighter, elegant style with perfumed rose petal, peat, violets, creme de cassis and smoke all emerging from the glass. Balanced, with a medium-bodied, nicely polished profile on the palate, it will be approachable early on and drink nicely for a decade. The wines all have a classic, fresh and focused feel, and certainly, those looking for big textures and loads of fruit should look elsewhere."Wine Advocate 89-91 points
