SERIOUS, DRY REDS

Serious dry reds - CÔTE RÔTIE, François et Fils. Northern Rhône

2014 CÔTE RÔTIE, François et Fils. Northern Rhône

Bin: 2218
Alcohol Percentage: 12.5%
Area: Côte-Rôtie is a renowned appellation near to Hermitage in the Northern Rhône. However unlike its neighbour, the style is all about elegance and freshness, not power and intensity. The steep slopes using grapes
This wine comes from three vertiginous south facing parcels, 'Les Rochains', 'Rozier' and 'Le Bourrier', in the 'Côte Brune' section, on schisty soil.
Grape Variety: 95% Syrah (a third of that fermented as 'whole bunches') and 5% Viognier, matured in oak for 18 months (20% new oak)
Producer: A classic small French farm - with only 4 hectares of vines and still making more cheese than wine. They only keep the very best grapes for their own wine, selling off the rest to the larger merchant producers.
Old Bridge Rating: Young, of course, but this is a classic example with peppery freshness and real elegance
