98-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "On another level, and unquestionably the best of the three vintages, the 2015 Côte Rôtie La Mouline sports an inky purple color as well as an off-the-charts bouquet of black currants, smoked herbs, spring flowers, gamey meats, and acacia flowers. Massively concentrated, opulent, and as sexy as wine gets, it reminds me of the 1978 La Mouline and has perfection written all over it. If you can afford it, this is a magical, legendary wine in the making that will keep for 4-5 decades." (12/2018) 99 points James Suckling: "A very ...

96-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Marked by hints of mint and herbal tea on the nose, the 2018 Côte Rôtie Côte Brune is another terrific effort from this parcel of vines that was replanted in 2000. Raspberries and blueberries surge forward on the medium to full-bodied palate, building in richness and complexity on the firm, palate-coating finish. (JD)" (12/2019) 96-97 points Vinous: "Intensely perfumed, spice- and mineral-tinged dark berry, floral pastille and smoky bacon scents show superb definition and take on a touch of olive paste with ...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine that’s going to push the upper limits of my scale, the 2018 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde has a wonderful sense of opulence and elegance paired with huge minerality and power. Giving up primordial notes of perfectly ripe currants, new saddle leather, spice, and wildflowers, it has a magical texture, huge richness and depth, loads of tannins, and a huge finish. It made my pulse jump." (12/2019) 97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most tannic of the "big three" bottlings this year, the 2018 Cote Rotie la Cote Blond...

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Côte Rôtie La Landonne offers the classic meaty, mineral, and masculine style that’s the hallmark of this terroir. It’s powerful and full-bodied, with massive minerality as well as notes of bloody meat, ground pepper, and graphite. It’s another serious, concentrated, powerful 2018 that’s going to demand bottle age." (12/2019) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "For the 2018 Cote Rotie la Landonne, Pierre Rostaing put together a blend from two barrels. Wow. Toast and mocha notes frame raspberries and blueberr...

97 points Decanter: "Elegant, perfumed, floral nose. This is generous, fresh and beguilingly complex already. It's dark and brooding but brimming with fruits, spices, flowers, a touch of smoke and graphite with a remarkably mineral, salty finish. Serious, but beautiful. Drinking Window 2020 - 2036. (MW)" (03/2020) 96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Just bottled, literally, the day before my visit, the 2017 Côte Rôtie nevertheless showed incredibly well, with loads of violets, pepper, game, framboise, and darker fruits. As Côte Rôtie as Côte Rôtie gets, this full-...

96 points Vinous: "Dark purple. Ripe dark fruit, floral and spice qualities on the expressive nose, along with hints of licorice, black cardamom, espresso and smoky minerals. Stains the palate with deeply concentrated cassis, bitter cherry and candied violet flavors that slowly unfold and take a sweeter turn through the midpalate. Youthfully chewy tannins add firm grip to a strikingly long, energetic finish that emphatically echoes the cassis and mineral notes. Made with 100% whole clusters. (JR)" (04/2020)
Price: $84.99

97 points Wine Spectator: "This is packed, with layers of charcoal and tar covering the well-endowed core of braised fig, blackberry pâte de fruit and pastis-soaked plum for now. Alder, olive and bay line the finish, with a terrific graphite spine lending support. Best from 2019 through 2030. (JM)" (10/2013) 93 points Vinous: "(100% syrah, from vines in the Cote Blonde that are reportedly almost 65 years old): Opaque ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet presents candied dark berries and cherry-cola, with notes of Indian spices, anise and smoked meat bu...

A very small producer, Jean-Michel Stephan sources this old vine cuvee from Coteau Bassenon in Côte-Rôtie. The vines were planted in 1896 with a historic Syrah clone called Serine (which the AOC is now trying to fully identify and preserve) and Viognier (which makes up about a full 20% of the blend). This vineyard is so low-yielding that it is only bottled in years that they get enough grapes. Otherwise the scant few grapes are included in a different cuvee.

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie was scheduled to be bottled not long after my visit. This is an undeniably great vintage at this address, even if Jean-Paul prefers his 2016s, calling 2015 'too much.' It’s worth pointing out that he thought the same about his 1991, which is a borderline perfect wine today. The 2015 sports a deep ruby/purple color to go with searing notes of pepper, smoked meats, flowers, and assorted black and blue fruits. With full-bodied richness, a concentrated, thick mid-palate, sweet, yet present tannin, and a huge fin...

92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the Côte Rôties, the 2018 Côte Rôtie Ampodium is a head turner and is going to rival the 2010 as the greatest vintage of this cuvée to date. A deep ruby/purple hue is followed by sumptuous notes of ripe dark fruits, ground herbs, scorched earth, and violets. Full-bodied, deep, and powerful on the palate, it has the wonderful sense of opulence and purity that’s the hallmark of the vintage. This was another power-packed lineup from the Rostaing Family, and you can’t go wrong with any of these new releases. The 2017s sh...

96 points John Gilman: "The 1991 Côte Blonde from René Rostaing has long been considered one of his finest wines and at age twenty-three, the wine is at its apogee of peak drinkability and simply stunning. The beautiful bouquet is still fairly youthful and will develop even more complexity with further bottle age, as it delivers a glorious blend of sweet dark berries, intense peppery notes, black olives, new leather, roasted gamebird, forest floor, nutskins and violets. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and quite peppery in personality...
Price: $414.99

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Since bottling, the 1990 appears to have put on weight. It is not as rich as the 1991, and by the standards of Gentaz, it is less interesting than his 1982, 1983, 1985, and 1988. However, it is a charming, medium-weight Côte Rôtie with a terrific fragrance, as well as a lovely, fat, luscious personality. (RP)" (12/1992) Wine Spectator: "Firm in texture, with earthy, barnyardy aromas and flavors and enough ripe blackberry and cherry notes to bring it around. A distinctive wine that lovers of old-style Rhônes will especial...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2017 Côte Rôtie La Landonne, a magical expression of the Grand Cru terroir. Deep purple-hued with killer notes of black raspberries, bacon fat, ground herbs, and obvious minerality, this beauty is full-bodied, has ultra-fine tannins, a deep, concentrated mid-palate, and a finish that won’t quit. Do your best to hold bottles for 4-5 years. 97+" (12/2019) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In tank and awaiting bottling when I tasted it, the 2017 Côte Rôtie la Landonne has smoothed out and added complexity in ...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Côte Rôtie La Mordorée comes from the La Côte Brune and the Côte Blonde lieux-dits and is brought up in demi-muids, roughly 35% being new. Black raspberries, currants, cured meats, new leather, and Asian spice notes all define the bouquet. Full-bodied, powerful, and opulent on the palate, it has lots of tannins, loads of fruit, and a great finish." (12/2019) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always a blend of the Côte Blonde and Côte Brune lieux-dits, the 2018 Cote Rotie la Mordorée features scents of penc...

93 points James Suckling: "There’s a lot to like in this 2016. Pepper-dusted, red berries, strawberries, red plums and raspberries. Refined herbs on offer, too. The palate is succulent, fleshy and soft with tangy, red berries and cherries. This has a more approachable feel than the Reserve bottling from here. " (07/2018) 93 points Vinous: "Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Assertive blackberry, candied licorice, bacon and potpourri scents are complemented by a smoky mineral overtone. Seamless and energetic in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated dark fruit a...

95 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and dark berries, licorice, exotic spices and potpourri and shows outstanding definition. Stains the palate with appealingly sweet black raspberry, blueberry and cherry preserve flavors that slowly tighten up on the back half. Shows superb energy and floral lift on an impressively long, focused finish shaped by steadily mounting tannins. This is quite a powerful wine (about 70% of the fruit comes from La Landonne, by the way) for one that checks in at only 13% alcohol. Made entirely ...
Price: $79.99

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Côte Rôtie La Landonne shows the more elegant and classical style of the vintage. As always, it’s 100% Syrah, from a great terroir in the Côte Brune side of the appellation, that will spend 48 months in new French oak barrels. It has textbook La Landonne notes of smoked meats, black fruits, and crushed rocks as well as full-bodied richness, surprising elegance and finesse for this cuvée (but that’s the vintage), flawless balance, and a great finish. I suspect it will have some early charm, but I’d still recommend 7-8 y...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Inky colored, the flagship 2015 Côte Rôtie La Mordorée is an utterly incredible wine any way you look at it and is a legendary Côte Rôtie in the making. Black raspberry, blackberry jam, toasted spices, dried flowers and cured meat notes give way to a sexy, full-bodied, ripe, and incredibly opulent 2015 that has sweet tannin, no hard edges and a huge finish. The fruit of the vintage, as well as the sweet tannin, allow this to offer pleasure even today, but it’s going to benefit from 5-6 years of bottle age and drink beautifully fo...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from a lieu-dit in the northern part of the appellation, the 2017 Côte Rôtie Montmain (100% Syrah) reveals a deep purple hue as well as terrific notes of smoked black fruits, ground pepper, graphite, and charred meats. Just a classic Syrah from schist soils, with full-bodied power and richness, it has a stacked mid-palate, plenty of structure, and a great finish." (12/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Côte Rôtie Lieu-Dit Montmain relies more on elegance than power to impress. Delicate notes of cr...

95 points Vinous: "Dark, glistening violet. Intensely perfumed, mineral-accented aromas of black raspberry and boysenberry, joined by exotic spice, potpourri and incense nuances that build with air. Energetic and focused on the palate, offering lithe, precise red and dark berry liqueur and violet pastille flavors and hints of star anise and cracked pepper. The floral note carries powerfully through a strikingly long finish, which features resonating red fruit and mineral notes and suave, well-judged tannins. This wine's elegant character is quite somethi...

2016 E. Guigal "La Mouline" Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Picked later than the 2015, the 2016 Cote Rotie La Mouline shows more dark fruit in its profile—think cassis and black olives—plus licorice and peppery spice. It's full-bodied, rich and supple, with a long finish. It may be nearly as good as the 2015, yet it'll be drinkable close to release. (JC)" (12/2019) 98 points Vinous: "Deep, glistening violet color. Highly perfumed aromas of fresh black/blue fruits, exotic spices, peony, vanilla and incense are complemented by a smoky mineral nuance. Juicy and expansi...

93 points Vinous: "Deep, brilliant violet. A mineral-tinged bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, peony and licorice, and a peppery flourish builds as the wine opens up. Shows impressive energy on the palate, offering juicy boysenberry and cherry compote flavors complemented by suggestions of spicecake and candied licorice. Sweet and seamless in texture, finishing on a lingering floral note, with impressive energy and smooth, harmonious tannins. (JR)" (04/2020) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Hints of peppery spice and licorice add compl...

95-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Not yet bottled, the 2016 Côte Rôtie La Turque was tight and closed on this occasion, yet its potential is undeniable. Vivid cassis and black fruits intermixed with hints of licorice, cured meats, and graphite all give way to a powerful, full-bodied 2016 that has the vintage’s elegance and purity paired with plenty of power. With lots of tannins, yet more than enough fruit, it’s another wine that won’t hit maturity for another decade, and it will keep for 30+ years." (12/2019) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Not ...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Côte Rôtie Neve comes from the more schist soils in the northern part of the appellation and is also brought up in demi-muids. It has a slightly more vivid purple color as well as racy notes of crème de cassis, vanilla, crushed violets, and ample minerality. It's always more focused, chiseled, and structured than the Mordorée. Both 2018 Côte Rôties from Chapoutier are brilliant wines in the making." (12/2019) 95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chapoutier's 2018 Cote Rotie Neve features stunning scents of vi...

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie La Turque (93% Syrah and 7% Viognier) is straight-up thrilling stuff and offers a massive, full-bodied style that stays seamless, incredibly elegant, and perfectly balanced. It doesn’t have the sheer weight or exotic quality of the La Mouline, yet gives up textbook crème de cassis, crushed rocks, violets, and graphite aromas and flavors. With fine tannins and a stacked mid-palate, it’s going to require 5-7 years of bottle age." (12/2018) 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like the La Mouline, the 2...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Cote Rotie La Belle Helene is perfection. In this vintage, Ogier cut back the barrel aging time from 32 months in largely new oak casks to 18 months. Ogier’s remarkable flexibility depending on vintage conditions and the quality of the fruit is admirable. He thinks this may be the greatest bottle of wine he has ever made, and it’s hard to disagree. An inky/purple color is followed by notes of pen ink, graphite, forest floor, licorice and abundant black and blue fruits. There is little evidence of new oa...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The saturated dark ruby/purple color is followed by an awesome nose that offers copious quantities of sweet black fruits, flowers, toasty new oak, and smoky bacon fat. In the mouth there is superb concentration, a sweet, expansive texture, and a mind-boggling, long finish. (RP)" (12/1996) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A muscular wine that still achieves great elegance, with restrained ripe plum, tobacco and tar flavors. The tannins are huge, but the wine is balanced.

Robert Parker writes: "Chapoutier's aim is to produce an exceptionally perfumed, soft, elegant cuvee of Cote Rotie, and a luxury cuvee that takes Cote Rotie's black-raspberry, exotic fruitiness and elegance to the limits of intensity, a la Marcel Guigal's La Mouline."

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Domaine Michel & Stephane Ogier "La Côte Blonde" Côte-Rôtie (97JD, 97WS, 95RP, 94VN). Wine Spectator: "Solidly built, with a warm cast iron note that runs from start to finish, accompanied by dark currant, fig and plum paste flavors. Steeped anise, smoldering gunpowder tea and bergamot accents add nuance throughout. Grippy for sure, but the fruit easily soaks it all up in the end. (JM)" (11/2019)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1999 Pierre Gaillard "Côte Rozier - Cuvée Unique" Côte-Rôtie (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I reported last year when the wines were still in barrel, the 1999 Cote Roties are awesome. The monster 1999 Cote Rotie Cote Rozier Reserve is tannic and backward, but the tannin is sweet and the fruit dominated by smoky black currant/cassis. Notes of incense, minerals, oak, and earth as well as a hint of melted road tar are present in this full-bodied, massive Cote Rotie. It requires five years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020." (04/2002)
Starting Bid: $140.00

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made from 100% Syrah, the 2017 Côte Rôtie L'Eglantine comes from a mix of parcels spread between the Côte Blonde and Côte Brune and spent 16 to 18 months in oak casks. This ruby-hued 2017 is medium to full-bodied and elegant, with a classy perfume of spiced raspberries, spring flowers, cured meats, and dried spice. With considerable elegance, building yet ripe tannins, and a balanced, layered style... 94+" (12/2019) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ferraton's 2017 Cote Rotie l'Eglantine displays cedary, meaty overton...

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1999 Pierre Gaillard "Les Viallieres" Côte-Rôtie (94RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I reported last year when the wines were still in barrel, the 1999 Cote Roties are awesome. The 1999 Cote Rotie Les Viallieres Reserve (20% Viognier included) offers up a potent perfume of violets, spring flowers, sausage, black fruits, and vanilla. It is tannic as well as full-bodied, dense, backward, and long. This wine is less approachable and civilized than Le Cret. It will be drinkable between 2005-2016. (RP)" (04/2002)
Starting Bid: $140.22

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1995 E. Guigal "Château d'Ampuis" Côte-Rôtie (93RP, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the treats when tasting through the profound Côte Rôties made by Marcel Guigal was the opportunity to taste all of the bottled 1995's. Reviewed in previous issues, they are even better from bottle than they were during their upbringing (a characteristic of many Guigal wines). The 1995 Côte Rôtie Château d'Ampuis is the stuff of legends and is every bit as compelling as readers might expect. This single vineyard wine will have at least 15 years of longevity.(RMP)" (10/1999)
