The 2018 Côte Rôtie Côte Brune is more bloody and meaty, with a dense, powerful, concentrated style. It has a distinct iron character as well as classic Côte Rôtie spice and dried flowers. It’s certainly another masculine, concentrated, age-worthy wine from this team.
Intensely perfumed, spice- and mineral-tinged dark berry, floral pastille and smoky bacon scents show superb definition and take on a touch of olive paste with air. Sappy and penetrating in the mouth, offering concentrated bitter cherry, black currant, candied violet and exotic spice flavors that become sweeter as the wine opens up. The floral and mineral notes carry emphatically through the penetrating finish, which features youthfully gripping tannins and lingering smokiness.
