It is composed of 97% Syrah, 3% Viognier and it is aged for 24 months in new and old oak barrels. The result is a captivating wine with a remarkable concentration and complexity. It is quite similar to the 2007 vintage and shares a similar softness, roundness, and finesse.
The Côte-Rôtie 2012 is grown from several famous terroirs. The three most well-known of them are heavily composed of mica schists. The Cote Brune is celebrated for its limestone clay rich in iron oxides. The Cote Blonde and Viallière are covered by some thin and highly decomposed surface soil rich in quartz and limestone.
