Yves Cuilleron Cote Rotie Terres Sombres 2005
Save $27.00 (21%)
Style: fruity, well-structured. Ageing: wine vinified for laying down; slightly hard when young. Preferable to wait 4-5 years, but it can age 15 years or more.
This is really packed, with dark plum, hoisin sauce, mocha, fig paste, mesquite and sweet tapenade notes, all carried by a dense graphite- and black licorice-filled finish. Shows the grip of the vintage. Best from 2010 through 2020.
