Northern Rhône

$49.00 per Bottle

"This is solidly built, offering a core of red currant, bitter plum and raspberry coulis flavors that stretch out over slightly taut singed alder and juniper notes. Flashes of bay leaf and chestnut kick in on the finish, where a lingering iron accent has a mouthwatering feel. Best from 2019 through 2029. 600 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"(aged for two years in 600-liter oak barrels, 60 percent of them new) Opaque ruby. Fresh black and blue fruits and olive on the highly perfumed nose, joined by quickly emerging floral and peppery spice notes. Sappy, focused and pure, showing very good depth and focus to the boysenberry, cherry compote and vanilla flavors. At once rich and lively, finishing with good power, building tannins and lingering spice and vanilla qualities." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"The Domaine de Bonserine 2013 Cote Rotie la Sarrasine, a classic blend of ten different lieux-dits mainly from the Côte Brune, boasts a knockout nose of cracked pepper, cinnamon and clove, rounded out on the palate by flavors of blueberries and roasted meat. This medium-bodied blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier shows some tough tannins on the spicy-savory finish but not the richness of a true vin de garde, so drink in the near term."
