Cote-Rotie, Jean Michel Stephan Coteux de Tupin
Deep, glistening magenta. A wild, complex bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, smoked meat, licorice and succulent flowers, and a smoky mineral nuance builds in the glass. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering sweet cassis, cherry, boysenberry and candied violet flavors and a gamy overtone. Finishes impressively long and smoky, with a hint of bitter cherry and sneaky tannins.
