Gilles Barge Cote-Rotie Cote-Brune 2009
"Outstanding quality, super premium. Intensely flavoured with distinct aromatic character, exhibits clear sense of place with the earthy and meaty savoury notes supported by generous fruit. This wine needs time to develop its full potential and will keep evolving positively for at least 5 years.” 18/20 Wine and Lifestyle
Wine Spectator – Features an old-school, mouthwatering feel, with briar, bay leaf and olive notes leading the way. Offers a core of juicy blackberry, black currant and black cherry fruit. The long finish delivers a lingering tapenade accent. Best from 2015 through 2025.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The essence of earth, raspberry jam, jus de viande, bouquet garni and spring flowers jumps from a glass of the dark ruby/plum-colored 2010 Cote Rotie Cote Brune. The richest of these six cuvees, with the most lingering finish, this medium to full-bodied, impressive, sexy, classic Cote Rotie can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years.
