Côte Rôtie Promesse AOC Côte-Rôtie Christophe Pichon Pere & Fils, 2017

France

Grape Variety

Syrah

The slopes of Côte-Rôtie are the steepest in the whole of the Rhône valley. Christophe has just over three hectares of old bush vines planted, or should that be clinging on, to schist soils. 2017 Côte-Rôtie, produced from 94% Syrah with 6% Viognier, has floral aromas combined with dark fruits, vanilla toast and cedar. It is a medium to full bodied wine which is structured with chewy tannins. Black cherry fruits emerge mid palate with nice weight and lead to a sour cherry and toasted spice finish. After an extended maceration on skins with regular pump overs and punching down of the cap, the wine was matured for 14 months in French oak barrels. Showing great potential for the cellar, it will not reach its optimum for drinking for some time yet.
