Roasted raspberry and pepper on the nose; fruitier than the Hermitage. Elegantly styled and fruity with sweet flavors of redcurrant raspberry bacon fat licorice leather and woodsmoke. Showing nicely today but this also has the backbone to develop over the next decade or so. Finishes long and juicy with tannins perfectly supported by the wine's mid-palate material.

An outstanding wine that has a classic feel, the 2001 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde is medium-bodied, clean and classy on the palate, with ample sweet cherry and currant-styled fruits, spice box, dried flowers and hints of bacon fat and olive. Showing the vintage nicely, with juicy acidity and a fresh, lively feel, it too should be consumed over the coming 3 to 5 years. - Jeb Dunnuck
