As to the reds, while no 2012s were presented, the 2013s were impressive. Starting with the 2013 Côte Rôtie, it comes mostly from the Mollard lieu-dit, with the rest from Viallière, Landonne and Font-Jean. 85% destemmed and aged 24 months in 10% new barrels and demi-muid, it offers classic, northern-styled minerality, iron, spring flowers and darker styled fruits. Tight, focused and beautifully pure, with a classic feel in its tannin and acid structure, give this beauty another 2-3 years and enjoy bottles through 2025. JEB DUNNUCK
