Domaine Bernard Burgaud Cote Rotie 2017
Showing much as it did on release, the 2017 Cote Rotie has a spicy, complex style offering terrific, gamey Côte Rôtie fruit as well as notes of flowery incense, bacon fat, violets, and peppery spice. This juicy, already complex 2017 is going to shine over the coming 15 years.
Deep, vivid ruby. Spice-tinged aromas of ripe red and dark berries, allspice and pungent flowers, with a smoky nuance emerging as the wine opens up. Sappy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are supported by a core of juicy acidity. Turns sweeter with aeration, picking up spicecake and floral pastille qualities that carry through a very long, gently tannic finish
