History has it that vines were planted here centuries ago. Two thousand years ago the Latin authors Martial, Pline l'Ancien, Columelle and Plutarque called the wine from Côte Rôtie "Vin Viennois".
The dark colour shows a good concentration. The nose is a bit closed when first opened but after airing, aromas of black fruit and spices appear.
The mouth is silky, elegant, feminine and very flattering. The finish is long and shows that the wine has plenty of life in it with flavours of cumin, sweet spices, blueberries and hazelnuts. Currently this wine needs to be decanted at least an hour before serving. Drink in its youth: Slow roasted lamb will be a great match for this wine. Le Magazine du Vin 95/100 points.
