(94-96)Not yet bottled, the 2016 Côte Rôtie La Côte Rozier (97% Syrah and 3% Viognier) sports a saturated purple color as well as rocking notes of crème de cassis, graphite, crushed rocks, and liquid violets. It's rich, full-bodied, powerful, and concentrated, with building tannins and beautiful purity. It's a powerhouse that needs 2-4 years of bottle age and will keep for 2 decades.

Made using 30% whole clusters, it's not particularly stemmy, just complex, with hints of cracked pepper, black olives and dark berries joined by hints of cedar and baking spices. It's plush and velvety on the palate, leading into a slightly dry, cedary finish. -JC

There's less Viognier on show here, shot through with dense, firm, ripe tannin. A powerful wine with well-integrated oak and a long finish. It's a touch unruly, but is an enjoyably untamed expression of Côte-Rôtie.
