Youthfully closed nose hints at gibier woodsmoke and oak with pungent peppery depth. On the palate this comes across as a sexier version of a young Chave Hermitage with notes of dark fruits chocolate black olive and pepper and a great slow-building aftertaste. Extremely deep wine that's best today on the explosive finish. As with the two 2003s the 2001 Lancement is much easier to taste than this cuvee in the early going. This needs a good eight to ten years of additional bottle aging and may ultimately surpass the Lancement. 94+ points

The limited production but phenomenal 2004 Cote Rotie La Belle Helene is one of the candidates for the wine of the vintage. Tannic and dense ruby/purple it is more masculine and austere than usual but still concentrated with tangy acidity loads of tannin and impressive levels of concentration and richness. This is a beauty that will require patience. Give it 3-4 years of bottle age and then drink it over the following 10-12 years.
