Cote Rôtie
''
Seigneur de Maugiron"
Delas Freres

RP/Jeb Dunnuck - The larger production release is the 2015 Côte Rôtie Seigneur de Maugiron and it’s another seriously impressive Côte Rôtie. Revealing more obvious tannin and brighter acidity, as well as lots of black and blue fruits, crushed rock, licorice, and floral aromas and flavours.

Cote Rôtie
''
Brune et Blonde"
E. Guigal

RP/Joe Czerwinski - Guigal's 2015 Cote Rôtie Brune et Blonde boasts hallmark aromas of dried flowers, herbs, raspberries and black olives. Medium to full-bodied, it's simultaneously rich and silky, showing fine, balanced acidity on the crisp finish. Considering it may account for as much as a third of the appellation's volume, it's a remarkable achievement and testament to the tremendous quality of the vintage. Even folks who buy and cellar the La Las will want to have some of this in their cellars for early drinking.

Cote Rôtie
''Chateau d'Ampuis
"
E. Guigal

RP/Jeb Dunnuck - Another absolutely off-the-charts barrel sample is the 2015 Côte Rôtie Chateau d’Ampuis, which comes from a blend of seven estate vineyards. Its inky black colour is followed by profound notes of crème de cassis, toasted spices, violets and smoked meats. Full-bodied, impeccably balanced, concentrated and tannic, and yet always elegant and precise, it’s certainly a match for the three single-vineyard releases.

Cote Rôtie
''La Mouline
"
E. Guigal

RP/Joe Czerwinski - Floral aromas accent sturdy notes of grilled meat and almost delicate notes of red berries in the open, approachable 2014 Cote Rôtie La Mouline. Medium to full-bodied, it shows great purity and a supple, silky, classic feel. It's built more on elegance and complexity than power, with those floral, herbal notes leaving a long, silky impression on the finish.

Cote Rôtie
''La Turque
"
E. Guigal

RP/Joe Czerwinski - Now that it's in bottle, the 2014 Cote Rôtie La Turque has exceeded all of my earlier expectations. It's got those classic Côte Rôtie elements on the nose of smoked bacon, olives and violets, seamlessly entwined with supple tannins and raspberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, it's silky and fine, showing tremendous length and complexity on the finish. On this occasion, La Turque came to the head of the class as the most approachable, exciting and elegant of the three La Las.

Cote Rôtie
'Ampodium'
R. Rostaing

RP/Joe Czerwinski -
The 2015 Cote Rôtie Ampodium is fairly full-bodied and quite rich. The black olive and raspberry notes verge on being jammy but are balanced by peppery spice and firm, savoury tannins. Give it 5 years in the cellar to settle down, and drink it over the next decade and a half or more. For an entry-level wine, it's remarkable.

Crozes Hermitage 'Thalabert.
Paul Jaboulet Aine

RP/Joe Czerwinski -
The 2015 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert is a super effort, packed with savoury notes of black olives and crushed stones. It's full-bodied and rich, with a hint of cedary oak, but there's plenty of fruit and ripe tannins on the lingering finish. Like some of those fine Thalabert vintages of the past, it should drink well for a couple of decades.
