Vintages 2017

JEB DUNNUCK

Score : (91-93+)

the 2017 Côte Rôtie Brune Et Blonde will be an outstanding wine as well as have 15 years of prime drinking. Rocking levels of kirsch and black raspberry fruits are interwoven with nuances of flowers, incense, herbes de Provence, and spice. This ripe, sexy, medium to full-bodied barrel sample shows the sunny style of the vintage yet has seamless tannins and stays weightless on the palate.

 

WINE ADVOCATE

Score : (90 - 92)

Hints of almond paste and vanilla accent red cherries and raspberries on the nose of the 2017 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde. It's medium-bodied, crisp and crunchy yet finishes ripe and silky. It's another classic vintage that should drink well young yet be capable of up to a decade of cellaring.
