A superlative Cote Rotie Syrah from E. Guigal RP 97
The 2007 Cote Rotie is an elegant, seamless example of this cuvee that offers sensational notes of smoked meats, truffles, blackberries and cassis, as well as a hint of tapenade with time in the glass. It has a rich, unctuous and full-bodied profile on the palate, with sweet, sweet tannin and an utterly seamless texture that makes it go down way too easily. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming two decades.
93% Syrah, 7% Viognier.
