Fox red. Sweet-toned with precise distribution around a core of wild plum, rubber, black tea, and brioche. On the palate this is virile and continuous, its blackberry fruit softly dancing to the fragrance of dried purple flowers. It builds oiliness with a southern tendency for soaked raisin, garrigue, and bovril beef extract. A light sprinkle of tannin keeps the drumbeat and the sarawak pepper finish has an authentic feel that reflects Côte-Rôtie correctly. Now.
