A lovely gift from two lovely friends.
Cote-Rotie 2001, Bernard Burgaud
This is a bit reductive and meaty, hopefully some air will make it blossom a bit. Yes it has, lovely floral aromas have begun to develop, yummy. This is properly complex, real lovely Cote-Rotie action here. There are Burgaud ‘noble tannins’ on the palate, and some really lovely fruit. There is spicy, earthy complexity, too. This is a really delicious wine. OK, hellishly young, but it is pleasuring me immensely.
