Info

A cuvée of Syrah planted in 1896 and 1902, 10 % Viognier and Serrine (Synoym Durif, grown on dark mimatite with magnesium iron mica. Bottled unfiltered without additional sulphur, after 24 months of ageing in small wooden barrels.

Color

Dense black-red, almost colour-dense to the rim.

Nose

Distinctive and intense, this wine shows itself on the nose. Sloe, blackcurrants and elderberries combine with tar, dark tobacco and charcoal. With a little oxygen contact, black bread, truffles and salmiac join in, as does freshly brewed coffee. A spectacular Côte Rotie with a lot of power and depth that you can literally dive into.

Palate

On the palate, the 2018 Côte Rotie "Coteaux de Basson" packs a punch and shows its youth with invigorating acidity and a ripe but still youthful tannic structure. Its powerful, earthy and distinctive character points to its fantastic ageing potential. A wine that loves fruity and dark flavours in the preparation of the dishes that accompany it. The classics of French cuisine are just a perfect match here!
