Guy Bernard Cote Rotie Cuvee Coteau de Bassenon
Domaine Guy Bernard
France - Rhone Valley - Cote-Rotie AOC

The wine comes from a tiny parcel in the commune of Tupin et Semons, located in the extreme south of the Côte Rôtie appellation. Made from old vine Syrah and a small percentage of Viognier, this cuvee offers a deep red color with purple hues, and a fragrant nose of candied red fruits with some roasted notes. A wine of great finesse and a delicate, long, silky finish.

2019 Guy Bernard Cote Rotie Coteaux de Bassenon - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Deep, vivid ruby color. Mineral-accented black raspberry, cherry, violet and cracked pepper scents, along with smoky bacon and cola nuances. Sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering ripe cassis, cherry-cola and spicecake flavors that become livelier as the wine opens up. Shows sharp delineation and dark fruit thrust on a persistent finish that's framed by steadily building tannins. 20% new oak. - Josh RAYNOLDS"
