Côte-Rôtie can be the finest expression of Northern Rhône Syrah, but it’s not the most consistently reliable appellation. After tasting nearly 200 different examples this year, I can safely say that this is the real thing and it’s fairly priced. It’s unashamedly old-fashioned, with a wonderfully resinous, smoky profile and berry fruit. Medium-bodied, ethereal, totally classic.
