I really like the 2006 vintage in Côte-Rôtie and the Côte Brune bottling from the Barge family is outstanding. This is still a fairly youthful wine at age ten, offering up a complex and classy aromatic constellation of cassis, black olive, pepper, still a touch of stems, a really fien base of soil, espresso, gentle medicinal tones and a bit of charred wood in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and really soil-driven, with moderate tannins, fine focus and grip and a long, transparent and classic finish. Fine, fine juice that just needs a few more years in the cellar to reach its plateau. (Drink between 2020-2050)

A more serious effort, the 2006 Cote Rotie Cote Brune offers up notes of tapenade, burning embers, blackberries, cherries, smoked herbs, and forest floor. The complex aromatics are followed by a dense, rich, chewy, impressive wine to drink over the next 10-15 years.
