Region France, Rhone
Grape Syrah, Viognier
Style Blueberries, Pepper, Black olive
Bottle Size 75cl
For most, Côte-Rôtie (along with Hermitage) is the finest expression of Syrah you can buy. Blended with 5% Viognier to add a little more sensuousness and lighten up the moody Syrah, this is a rich and brooding bottle while still being accessible and not overly challenging.
As always with Syrah there's a touch of pepper, smoke and some leather.
