Wine Tasting Notes: This is about classicism and balance. It gained some density over time in the barrels in order to get its own fullness. There is probably a little more acidity but the magical softness of the Cote-Rotie can be easily found. This softness is what makes the Cote-Rotie wines different from its neighbors in the northern Rhone. Like a great Burgundian Pinot, a good Cote-Rotie doesn't need a big concentration to get the style and the magical.
