The appellation of Côte Rôtie is located on the hills of the right bank of the Rhône river. The vineyards are located at an altitude ranging between 180 and 325 metres above sea level, with the gradient measuring 60%. The main soil is granite covered in places by schist but also sand and calcareous soils. The wine is made from grapes primarily sourced from the southern part of the appellation; Côte Blonde and Côteau de Tupin.
The grapes went through a period of cold maceration to extract the delicate aromatics from the fruit. Co-fermentation of the Syrah and Viognier grapes lasted for about 20 days with pumping-over for the first few days followed by punching-down. The wine was aged in one year old oak barrels for 15 months.
This Côte-Rôtie reveals a complex and powerful nose with notes of violets, black fruit, spices and liquorice. Concentrated flavours match the nose, with velvety tannins and gentle spice lingering on the long finish.
