SKU: B364Regular price $79.95
The amazing quality of the 2019 reds from the Northern Rhône mean we have no doubt this edition of Jean-Luc's Côte-Rôtie Terrasses is another stunner. Rhône specialist Jeb Dunnuck believes “this vintage will be up near the top of the pyramid in modern-day vintages”, with Côte Rôtie in particular producing “ripe, yet concentrated, serious wines”.
Terrasses is a blend of top lieux-dit parcels, including Lancement, Bonnivières and Landonne. The ’19 has an intense nose of black fruit, violets, and crushed graphite. In keeping with the vintage, it is juicy and well-structured, but tannins are fine and elegant, and there is a peppery precision to the finish that keeps this fresh. Extremely well-balanced.
