2015 E. Guigal "La Mouline" Côte-Rôtie
Top Pick!
98-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "On another level, and unquestionably the best of the three vintages, the 2015 Côte Rôtie La Mouline sports an inky purple color as well as an off-the-charts bouquet of black currants, smoked herbs, spring flowers, gamey meats, and acacia flowers. Massively concentrated, opulent, and as sexy as wine gets, it reminds me of the 1978 La Mouline and has perfection written all over it. If you can afford it, this is a magical, legendary wine in the making that will keep for 4-5 decades." (12/2018) 99 points James Suckling: "A very ...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie Eminence from Niero is another brilliant 2015 that should be snatched up by readers. A blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier sourced from the Valliere and Coteau de Bassenon lieux-dits, aged in 20% new oak, it has a beautiful perfume of black raspberries, dried flowers, incense, and cured meats. Medium to full-bodied and seamless on the palate, it has an elegant, pure, yet concentrated style that’s going to continue evolving gracefully for 15 years or more." (03/2019) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Lavender and vio...

2015 E. Guigal Côte-Rôtie "Brune et Blonde" (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Spectator: "Dark and winey, this is youthfully tight, with a core of intense black cherry and black currant preserve flavors, encased within layers of olive, singed alder, juniper and iron. Very focused and driven through the finish. Cellar for maximum effect. (JM)" (09/2019) 94 points Vinous: "Glass-staining ruby. Powerful black/blue fruit, floral pastille, cola, olive and incense aromas pick up a smoky mineral nuance as the wine opens up. Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering intense, spice- and smoke-inflected black raspberry, b...

Robert Parker writes: "Chapoutier's aim is to produce an exceptionally perfumed, soft, elegant cuvee of Cote Rotie, and a luxury cuvee that takes Cote Rotie's black-raspberry, exotic fruitiness and elegance to the limits of intensity, a la Marcel Guigal's La Mouline."
Price: $269.99

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Cote Rotie La Landonne is a perfect wine ... at least for my palate. Its saturated black/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary nose of smoke, incense, tapenade, creosote, blackberry, and currant aromas. It is densely packed with blackberry, truffle, chocolate, and leather-like flavors. The wine possesses high tannin, but perfect harmony, impeccable balance, and gorgeous integration of acidity, alcohol, and tannin. It is a tour de force in winemaking. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025. (RP)" (04/...

97 points Decanter: "The winemaking at Domaine Rostaing is now in the hands of René's son Pierre, and it follows the same format for all the Côte-Rôties: four weeks in tank, 18 months in mostly old oak, natural yeasts, and as many stems as possible. A certain spice and perfume is contained within a dark, brooding mass, which has really fragrant, lifted, sweet berry fruit. There's considerable tangy berry acidity and blackberry-skin tannins, and it shows a good sense of refinement despite the remarkably powerful sinew. A very long, well balanced finish. G...

90 points Wine Spectator: "Solid, with green olive, briar and bay notes studding a core of steeped black cherry and blackberry fruit. A briary feel gives the finish a grippy edge. Drink now through 2021. 198 cases imported. (JM, WEb Only-2015)"

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Scheduled to be bottled just after this visit, the 2015 Côte Rôtie Château D'Ampuis reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of smoked black fruits, caramelized blackcurrants, leady herbs, ground pepper, and earth. It's deep, rich, massively concentrated, and a powerhouse of a wine that’s going to need bottle age, but wow, what a wine! The big news at the Guigal estate is the purchase of Domaine de Nalys in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The family has always wanted an estate in the South, and Nalys is an unr...

Decanter: "Clear cherry aroma, a note of bacon and light cocoa. Very vibrant palate and lovely acidity with nice tannins. Needs time to fill out. Drinking Window 2015-2030. (Blind tasted by Gearoid Devaney MS, John Livingstone-Learmonth, Matt Walls)" (01/2015)
Price: $64.99

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I give Rostaing's 2015 Cote Rotie La Cote Blonde the slightest of edges over the La Landonne for its more aromatic, floral nose. It shows that same unfathomable depth and richness married to a sense of weightlessness and elegance that marks the La Landonne, and it also shows those wonderfully pure raspberry flavors. It's lush, velvety and incredibly long on the finish. Collectors fortunate enough to grab some of each will have great fun comparing the two over the next 30 years or so. (JC)" (12/2017) 98 points ...


92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting with Rene's classic Cote Rotie, the 2012 Cote Rotie Ampodium is a mostly destemmed blend from Rene's 13 different terroirs. It's aged in a combination of demi-muid and older barrels, with just 5% being new. It's smoking base cuvee that does everything right, offering up tons of sweet blackberry, wild herbs, pepper, spice and olive aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, beautifully textured and with impressive concentration, all while stay classic and elegant, it's a no-brainer purchase and will have 15-20 year...



95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A bigger, richer, more brooding wine, the 2017 Côte Rôtie La Landonne boasts stunning (and classic La Landonne) aromas and flavors of black fruits, smoked meat, and scorched earth. Full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and structured, this is one of the few 2017s that’s going to really demand cellaring. " (12/2018) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Cote Rotie la Landonne looks a bit simple at the moment, but it's early days. Rich, ripe raspberry fruit muscles out any other nuances in this full-bodied, ve...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie Le Viallière isn’t part of the single vineyard boxed set and will be released on its own. After tasting it, I certainly understand why as it’s an incredible wine. Possessing awesome purity in its blackberry, blackcurrants, charcoal, meat, and dried flower aromatics, it’s full-bodied, concentrated, and sexy, yet also perfectly balanced, seamless and elegant. It’s a complete, classic Côte Rôtie that will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring and keep for two decades." (01/2018) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Features...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Cote Rotie La Belle Helene is perfection. In this vintage, Ogier cut back the barrel aging time from 32 months in largely new oak casks to 18 months. Ogier’s remarkable flexibility depending on vintage conditions and the quality of the fruit is admirable. He thinks this may be the greatest bottle of wine he has ever made, and it’s hard to disagree. An inky/purple color is followed by notes of pen ink, graphite, forest floor, licorice and abundant black and blue fruits. There is little evidence of new oa...

95 points Wine Spectator: "Features dark currant, fig and boysenberry preserve flavors that are densely concentrated and supported by authoritative grip built on graphite and cast iron accents. Ganache, black tea, singed bay leaf and juniper notes add detail and range through the finish, where latent minerality lurks in reserve. (JM)" (11/2019) 94 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, violet, olive paste and smoky minerals, with a suave floral topnote. Offers densely packed black and blue fruit, floral pastille...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Am I being stingy in only awarding Rostaing's 2015 Cote Rotie la Landonne 99+ points? This is a tremendous wine, showing immense richness and power without any apparent weight. Raspberries flood the palate in waves, accented by various spices in a wine that's intensely tannic yet never hard or astringent. Breathtaking stuff. (JC) 99+" (12/2017) 97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie La Landonne is more tannic and structured, with the smoky, meaty, mineral-laced bouquet I always find in this terroir. Black,...

93 points James Suckling: "There’s a lot to like in this 2016. Pepper-dusted, red berries, strawberries, red plums and raspberries. Refined herbs on offer, too. The palate is succulent, fleshy and soft with tangy, red berries and cherries. This has a more approachable feel than the Reserve bottling from here. " (07/2018) 93 points Vinous: "Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Assertive blackberry, candied licorice, bacon and potpourri scents are complemented by a smoky mineral overtone. Seamless and energetic in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated dark fruit a...

2015 Domaine Michel & Stéphane Ogier "Mon Village" Côte-Rôtie
New!
93 points Vinous: "right purple. Assertive raspberry, licorice pastille and potpourri scents are complemented by a lively mineral overlay. Seamless and focused on the palate, offering deeply concentrated red/blue fruit liqueur, candied violet flavors and an energizing jolt of exotic spices. Finishes with strong mineral, smoke and red fruit character, with well-knit tannins and very good tenacity.(JR)" (04/2018) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ogier's entry-level Côte Rôtie is concentrated, ripe and rich this vintage. The 2015 Cote Rotie Villa...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The saturated dark ruby/purple color is followed by an awesome nose that offers copious quantities of sweet black fruits, flowers, toasty new oak, and smoky bacon fat. In the mouth there is superb concentration, a sweet, expansive texture, and a mind-boggling, long finish. This lavishly rich Cote Rotie, which is already delicious, is capable of lasting for 10-15 years. (RP)" (12/1996) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A muscular wine that still achieves great elegance, with restrained ripe plum, tobacco and tar flavor...

97 points Decanter: "There is no better way to develop an understanding of the different expressions of the single vineyard sites of Côte-Rôtie than by tasting from barrel in Jean-Paul Jamet's underground bunker - especially in a vintage like 2016. 'You smell the terroir first in 2016; in 2015, you smell the vintage first,' he says. Whereas his wonderful 2015 has a lush, easy-going charm, the 2016 is more tailored and precise. Moving from Les Lezards to Gerine, then Fongeant, Le Plomb and La Landonne, each barrel has its own marked character. It's clear ...


This 3-Pack OWC contains one bottle each of Guigal's Côte-Rôtie selections from 2009: La Landonne, La Turque, and La Mouline. All received a 100-Point score from Robert Parker in December of 2012. The La Landonne bottling recently received an updated 100-point perfect score from Jeb Dunnuck: "I’ve been lucky to have drunk close to a case of the 2009 Côte Rôtie La Landonne, and if there’s a more perfect Syrah out there, I don’t know of it. Revealing a vivid ruby/purple color, it delivers a spectacular bouquet of crème de cassis, smoked meats, graphite, s...
Price: $1,799.00

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The first vintage for this cuvée and from relatively younger vines planted in 2010, the 2015 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde is another gorgeous wine from this young superstar winemaker. Offering beautiful notes of black raspberries, black currants, spring flowers, violets, and incense, with more minerality and deep Syrah meatiness with air, this full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, finesse-driven Côte Rôtie has sweet tannin and a layered, seamless texture that just keeps on giving. Due to its purity of fruit and incredible tannin qualit...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the treats when tasting through the profound Côte Rôties made by Marcel Guigal was the opportunity to taste all of the bottled 1995's. Reviewed in previous issues, they are even better from bottle than they were during their upbringing (a characteristic of many Guigal wines). The 1995 Côte Rôtie Château d'Ampuis is the stuff of legends and is every bit as compelling as readers might expect. This single vineyard wine will have at least 15 years of longevity.(RMP)" (10/1999) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's Inte...

2016 Delas Freres "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie (Previously $190) (Previously $190)
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Spectator: "Alluring, with warm fruitcake and black tea aromatics leading off for a lush and warm core of crushed plum, cherry reduction and blackberry pâte de fruit flavors. Despite the showy fruit detail, there’s a solid iron underpinning, pretty floral notes and bright energy throughout. (JM)" (04/2019) 95 points Decanter: "The first vintage of this wine was in 1997. It has resonant Côte-Rôtie aromatics; sylvan, resinous, and more vinous than many. It is medium to full-bodied, with generous, concentrated, sweetly-ripe fruit, very fin...

97 points Decanter: "Aged in demi-muids - a maximum of 10% new oak - with no destemming. It has that austere mineral character on the nose so typical of La Landonne. It is rounded, with good concentration and ripeness, matched with ample, piercing acidity and bristling with fine, fresh tannins. Its intensity comes primarily from its structure and mineral content rather than the fruit, and it is incredibly energetic and lively on the palate. Powerful and very well balanced in a structural, chiselled style, this is in an altogether different league from hi...

95 points James Suckling: "This comes from the schist section, in the north of the appellation, and has a very complex and spicy edge to the dark berries and cherries. The palate has a succulent, savory and very powerful, expressive feel with latent spices and roasted meat, through a very intense core of black fruits. Ripe grapes and whole bunches here. Intense and juicy with strapping tannins. Drink over the next decade or more." (10/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Notes of smoked meat and cold fireplace mark the nose of Saint Cosme...

94 points Wine Spectator: "This is very solidly built, nearly bristling with briary energy along the edges while the core of steeped plum, cherry and currant fruit cruises through. Mouthwatering savory, tobacco and olive notes score the finish, all set against a lovely floral accent in the background. (JM)" (02/2019) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the 2016s and starting with the 2016 Côte Rôtie Ampodium, this beautiful, silky, incredibly elegant wine has classic notes of red and black fruits, spring flowers, hints of bacon fat as well as green olive...

Domaine Clos de la Bonnette was purchased in 1992 by wife and husband team, Isabelle Guiller and Henri Montabonnet. Isabelle had her eye on this abandoned vineyard site for many years before they moved forward. The main reason that the site remained unoccupied was because the hillsides were in complete disarray, as many of the stone retaining walls had collapsed over the decades due to neglect. Restoring this property could only be done as a labor of love, not a commercial venture. Isabelle and Henri did most of the restoration themselves, rebuilding the...

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Cote Rotie Ampodium shows an extra level of concentration when compared to the 2016, without sacrificing the gorgeous aromas of violets, raspberries and tea leaves. It's medium to full-bodied, finishing silky and long. (JC) " (10/2018) 92-93 points Vinous: "Brilliant violet color. An expansive bouquet evokes ripe black/blue fruits, potpourri and olive paste. A lively mineral nuance builds in the glass. Shows impressive depth and energy on the palate, offering sappy dark berry, spicecake and violet f...

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie La Turque (93% Syrah and 7% Viognier) is straight-up thrilling stuff and offers a massive, full-bodied style that stays seamless, incredibly elegant, and perfectly balanced. It doesn’t have the sheer weight or exotic quality of the La Mouline, yet gives up textbook crème de cassis, crushed rocks, violets, and graphite aromas and flavors. With fine tannins and a stacked mid-palate, it’s going to require 5-7 years of bottle age." (12/2018) 98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The potentially perfec...

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As to the single Côte Rôtie, it comes from a site in the Côte Brune side of the appellation, just to the north of la Viallière. Notes of spices, crushed flowers, black raspberries, incense, and hints of gamey meats all emerge from the 2017 Côte Rôtie Lieu Dit Montmain, which is all destemmed Syrah brought mostly in neutral barrels. Possessing medium to full body, sweet tannins, and a great texture, it has the classic elegance paired with sexiness that's the hallmark of this magic appellation." (12/2018) 92-94 points Robert Pa...

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always a top performer, the 2017 Cote Rotie La Landonne features notes of charred meat and espresso on the nose, velvety-textured dark fruit flavors on the palate and a long, clove and allspice-tinged finish. It's medium to full-bodied, fleshed out by concentrated black olive notes. It should be entering maturity around 2025 and drink well through 2040. (JC)" (10/2018) 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Côte Rôtie La Landonne is a beautiful wine and shows the more forward, sexy style of the vintage. Blackcu...

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Similarly colored, the purple-hued 2016 Côte Rôtie La Brocarde incorporates 5% Viognier and comes from the La Brocarde lieu-dit and will see 26 months in new barrels. It offers more blue fruits, violets, and liquid rock characteristics, full body, a deep, stacked mid-palate, and building tannins. It's a primordial barrel sample that's going to require 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20 years." (12/2018) 94 points Vinous: "Vivid purple. Intense blackberry, cherry preserve, licorice pastille, bacon and vanilla scents ar...

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1997 & 2000 Ogier Côte-Rôtie Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 1997 Ogier Côte-Rôtie ((88-90RP)) and 1-bottle of 2000 Ogier Côte-Rôtie (90ST). Of the 1997 Ogier Côte-Rôtie,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 1997 Cote Rotie may turn out to be outstanding. It displays a deep purple color, a sweet nose of smoke, pine needles, blackberry/cassis fruit, and a floral note. The wine has medium body, outstanding purity, a low acid, opulent texture, and admirable depth and length. Although some tannin is present, this beauty will drink well young, and last for 12-15 years. (RP)" (02/1999)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1998 Ogier Côte-Rôtie (90RP, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ogier's regular cuvee of Cote Rotie sees about 25-30% new oak. It spends 18 months in barrel, and over 70% of the grapes emerge from their holdings on the Cote Blonde. The 1998 Cote Rotie exhibits scents and flavors of charred earth, smoke, minerals, and cassis. The wine is full-bodied, rich, and dense, with abundant tannin in the finish. The French might call it a true vin de garde. It needs 4-5 years of cellaring, and will keep for 15-18+ years. This wine is bottled with no filtration. (RP)" (02/2001)

Bid on this bottle of 2011 E. Guigal "La Mouline" Côte-Rôtie (98JD, 98RP, 96VN, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting out the single vineyards and bottled in February (after over four years in new oak barrels), the 2011 Cote Rotie la Mouline is as slutty, sexy and seamless as they come. Full-bodied, thrillingly concentrated and unctuous, it offers classic Mouline notes of cured meats, violets, black raspberries, espresso and hints of vanilla bean. Philippe Guigal commented that the worst thing about 2011 was the it came after 2010, and while the previous two vintages will get all of the attention, this 2011 will deliver almost as much pleasure, and do it right from the start as well. It needs 3-4 years of cellaring and will drink sensationally through 2041. One of the highlight tastings during my two weeks spent working in the northern Rhône was with Philippe and Marcel Guigal, who in this critic’s opinion, consistently fashion some of the greatest wines in the world. Looking

Bid on this bottle of 1996 E. Guigal "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie ((93-95ST), 93RP, 92WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Color similar to the Turque. Knockout aromas of sappy cherry, roasted game, fresh blood, dark chocolate and road tar. Hugely rich and chewy, but considerably less evolved than the last two samples, with a rather powerful structure. Explosive back-end flavors build slowly but go on and on. Will be long-lived. (ST)" (01/2000)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1999 Ogier Côte-Rôtie (95RP, 94WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest Cote Roties Ogier has made (and he agrees) are the 1999s. The fabulous, opaque purple-colored 1999 Cote Rotie, which spent two years in wood (30% new), reveals a glorious bouquet of bacon fat, creme de cassis, licorice, violets, and spice box. It is full-bodied, with sweet tannin, great presence in the mouth, and a knock-out finish. Although it will be approachable in its youth, 3-4 more years of cellaring will be beneficial. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018. Michel Ogier and his son, Stephane, are producing spectacular wines. The only problem is that production is small. As I indicated last year, Ogier's 1999s are magical. (RP)" (04/2002)

Bid on this bottle of 1997 E. Guigal "La Landonne" Cote Rotie (98RP, 97WS, (93-95ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nearly perfect 1997 Cote Rotie La Landonne is an amazing achievement for the vintage. An astonishing saturated purple color is followed by scents of licorice, roasted meats, coffee, toasty oak, plums, and blackberries. The wine is extremely smoky, earthy, and terroir-driven. This 1997 offers exceptional expansiveness on the palate, sweet tannin, low acidity, and a ripe, robust finish. One to three years of cellaring is warranted, but it is capable of lasting for two decades. (RP)" (04/2002)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1991 Gentaz-Dervieux "Côte Brune - Cuvée Réservée" Côte-Rôtie (97JG, 94ST, 90RP). John Gilman: "I still have a few bottles of the 1991 Gentaz Côte Brune in my cellar and I will not be planning on opening a bottle for at least another five to ten years, as this is a remarkably young wine still at age twenty-two! The young and beautifully complex nose soars from the glass in a magical mélange of cassis, black pepper, smoked meats, stony soil tones, black raspberries and a smoky topnote redolent of bonfires. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with a very stony signature of soil, firm, ripe tannins and a very, very long, poised and youthful finish that still shows just a bit of its youthful stemminess. This will ultimately be one of the greatest vintages ever produced by Monsieur Gentaz in his long career, but I would definitely keep it tucked away in the cellar for several more years to come, as there are layers and layers o

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Benetiere "Le Dolium" Côte-Rôtie . Pierre organically farms his 3.5 hectares in Condrieu and Côte Rôtie. In keeping with ancient cellar methods, he uses full stems during his fermentations and very little amounts of SO2 in his wines. From the importer: "A visit with Pierre Benetiere is like something out of a fable: the hermit vigneron, a bit crazy in the best possible way, a descent down into his dark, ancient cellar. Before knocking on his door the first time, we heard stories of the unique and reclusive Pierre Benetiere. As we met and shook hands, he calmly kept eye contact for what seemed like a full minute. Often, meeting a Frenchman for the first time can be an uncomfortable moment for everyone. But Pierre—present, open, and completely himself—instantly put us at ease. It’s obvious that he is special. As wine seekers who chase this unicorn know, Pierre’s wines are pure, elegantly structured, and made with intention—a great blend of art and craft.
Starting Bid: $630.00

Bid on this bottle of 2001 Rene Rostaing Cote Rotie ''La Landonne'' (94WS, 93RP, 91JG, 91ST). Wine Spectator: "This is a taut and minerally version, with lavender, iron and olive paste notes holding sway over racy cherry and cassis fruit. Floral notes weave through the finish, where a jolt of acidity takes over. Sinewy now, so let this flesh out in the cellar; it'll be a beauty. (JM)" (08/2004)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 E. Guigal "La Turque" Côte-Rôtie (95RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Côte Rôtie La Turque possesses a dark, saturated ruby/purple color, aromas of caramel, vanillin, and smoked cherry jam, medium to full body, outstanding ripeness, a plush, surprisingly soft finish, and loads of glycerin. (RP)" (02/2001)
Starting Bid: $220.00

Bid on this bottle of 2004 Yann Chave Hermitage Rouge (93ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Intense mineral-driven aromas of spicy red- and blackcurrant, kirsch and licorice, plus a complicating floral element. Juicy, concentrated dark berry flavors are impressively sweet and build through a long, expansive finish. For its abundance of sweet, luscious fruit, this shows outstanding focus and energy. (JR)" (01/2007)
Starting Bid: $50.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1998 V. Gasse Côte Rôtie. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby. Aromas of kirsch, licorice, anise, eucalyptus and pungent herbs. Thick in texture but the flavors are greener than those of the Brune. Tarry nuance. This comes across as quite tannic, even though there plenty of underlying density. Seems a bit more evolved than the Brune. Gasse says this is always the better of his two bottlings, but in '98 (and in '99 as well) I preferred the balance of the Cote Brune. (ST)" (01/2001)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this bottle of 2001 Thierry Allemand "Chaillot" Cornas (92VN). Vinous: "Bright, deep ruby-red. Explosively perfumed aromas of wild strawberry, redcurrant, blackberry, violet and gunflint. Perfumed, juicy and precise in the mouth, with terrific lift and elegance. Impressively concentrated wine, finishing with very fine tannins and terrific peppery length. Almost Cote-Rotie-like in its aromatic character. (ST)" (01/2004)
Starting Bid: $245.00
