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/Joe Czerwinski - The 2015 Cote Rôtie Chateau d'Ampuis is remarkably dense and concentrated, packed with dark fruit and rich tannins. It's full-bodied and supple on the mid-palate, adding hints of vanilla, espresso and dried spices on the long, velvety finish. Give it another 3-4 years in the cellar, then drink it over the next two decades.

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 Blonde
'La Chatillonne'
Vidal-Fleury

RP/Joe Czerwinski -
Showing a bit toasty and cedary at the moment, the 2015 Cote Rôtie la Chatillonne Cote Blonde should come into its own in just a couple more years. It's medium to full-bodied with ample concentration, a fantastic, velvety texture and grace notes of vanilla and baking spices. It just needs some time to absorb its oak.

Cote Rôtie Blonde
'La Chatillonne'
Vidal-Fleury

RP/Jeb Dunnuck -
A step up over the ’09, the 2010 Cote Rôtie Cote Blonde La Chatillonne (88% Syrah and 12% Viognier) gives up a fabulous bouquet of violets, rose petal, blackberry jam, game and hints of wild herbs that continues to develop in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and finesse driven on the palate, with a seamless texture, this gorgeous 2010 can be consumed now (preferably with a decant), or cellared for a decade or more
2010 £75.00 RP/JD94

Crozes Hermitage 'Thalabert'
Paul Jaboulet Aine

RP/Joe Czerwinski -
A sample of the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert suggests this will be another good year. Lifted aromas of peppered raspberries lead the way, followed by a wine that's full-bodied, with well-ripened tannins, a lush, creamy mouthfeel and a finish that just falls a little bit short of expectations.
