Gilles Côte‐Rôtie’s exude floral and spicy complexity with a structure that is surrounded by ripe fleshy fruit with depth and round tannins. Given time, these features develop providing a wonderful perfume, velvety mouth‐feel, layered earthy complexity and great persistence. His Condrieu smells like apricots – it’s fresh and concentrated with only 15% of the fruit seeing one‐year‐old oak for six months; the fruit weight and flavour is drop‐dead gorgeous.
“Prime example of traditional Côte‐Rôtie. Wines are very consistent.” John Livingston‐Learmonth
