This is a 1500ml bottle.

This Syrah (made with 5% Viognier) combines a powerful side with very floral notes. It is a dark wine offering a mineral nose with notes of smoke, black fruit, black olive, and pepper -- always enhanced by a floral component. It is aromatic on the palate, with firm but smooth tannins, and a beautiful lingering finish. Its aromatic mouth, with well-built but smoothed tannins, continues in a beautiful final length. An immediate pleasure that slowly, over the years, grows to be the most typical expression of the Syrah from Cote-Rotie.

Enticing blackberry and raspberry fruit flavors are melded together with singed savory, dark olive and fresh bay accents in this lovely red, which has a sleek feel through the finish, with just a light gilding of toast to add range. Drink now through 2030.

James Suckling 93
Vibrant cherries, cassis, green peppers, cedar and violets with raspberry and grapefruit aromas. The palate has a fresh, sleek and elegant delivery of blackcurrant and purple-cherry flavors with lemon verbena and cassis fruit, delivered amid fine, succulent tannins. Try from 2023.

Jeb Dunnuck 91
The only 2016 Côte Rôtie bottled, the 2016 Côte Rôtie Blonde du Seigneur incorporates 5% Viognier and spent 18 months in barrel and foudre, with just a small part being new. It offers beautiful red and black berry fruits intermixed with notions of smoked meats, spice, and mint. This elegant, seamless 2016 is impeccably balanced and will keep for 7-8 years, probably longer.
