Coming all from the schist soils in the Côte Brune side of the appellation, the 2016 Côte Rôtie Lieu Dit Montmain was destemmed, vinified all in concrete tanks and spent 14 months in 15% new French oak. Deep purple-colored, it offers a vibrant bouquet of black raspberries, violets, incense, and hints of game. Silky, elegant, and just straight up seamless on the palate, it hits all the right spots and finishes with terrific length. This is haute couture at its finest and will drink well for 10-15 years or more.

Very fresh, with a racy core of cassis, damson plum and bitter cherry fruit carried by a mouthwatering iron spine. The long finish is pure, letting the minerality take the lead, along with bay leaf and savory notes... Very fresh, with a racy core of cassis, damson plum and bitter cherry fruit carried by a mouthwatering iron spine. The long finish is pure, letting the minerality take the lead, along with bay leaf and savory notes, surrounded by ample fruit. Best from 2020 through 2030. 120 cases made.–JM

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, November 2018
Smoky campfire notes and hints of mocha lead off the 2016 Cote Rotie Lieu-Dit Montmain. A medium to full-bodied effort, it's silky and expansive on the palate, boasting lovely harmony and finesse, yet it's not lacking... Smoky campfire notes and hints of mocha lead off the 2016 Cote Rotie Lieu-Dit Montmain. A medium to full-bodied effort, it's silky and expansive on the palate, boasting lovely harmony and finesse, yet it's not lacking concentration or berry fruit. It should drink well for a decade or more. - Joe Czerwinski

(VN 91-93 points) Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Smoke- and mineral-accented aromas of dark fruit liqueur, olive paste, licorice and cracked pepper. Palate-staining, spice-inflected black currant and bitter cherry liqueur... (VN 91-93 points) Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Smoke- and mineral-accented aromas of dark fruit liqueur, olive paste, licorice and cracked pepper. Palate-staining, spice-inflected black currant and bitter cherry liqueur flavors become deeper and sweeter with air. Delivers a very serious punch but comes off graceful, finishing with excellent persistence and supple, slow-building tannins. -- Josh Raynolds
