2016 Georges Vernay "Maison Rouge" Côte-Rôtie (1.5L) (Previously $240)

SKU #1469070 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Bright and fresh, with lively red currant, bitter cherry and damson plum fruit streaking through, with lovely floral, chalk and savory details throughout. Long, mouthwatering minerality on the finish adds even more energy. (JM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright violet. Vibrant, intensely perfumed black and blue fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of exotic spices, potpourri and smoky minerals. Seamless and precise on the palate, showing intense mineral lift and thrust to the appealingly sweet blueberry, violet pastille, salty olive and spicecake flavors, which deepen on the back half. The mineral note gains strength with air and carries emphatically through a vibrant, focused finish that features discreet tannins and lingering florality. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Côte Rôtie Maison Rouge saw a touch of the blend vinified in barrels (30% stems). Its ruby hue is followed by a classic Côte Rôtie that has lots of framboise, spring flowers, exotic spice, and some bacon fat. Medium-bodied, elegant, and lively on the palate, it's beautifully made... Inner quote mark (12/2019)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A single parcel of Côte Blonde, this has very assertive oak influence for now with a swathe of cedar and blueberries, as well as white pepper and cloves. The palate has sleek, fine and upright tannins that carry a fresh, lithe and long red-plum and cherry finish. Power meets elegance here. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Wonderful oak spice with violet, plum, pepper, black cherry and a touch of garrigue. Pure pleasure, with a long, vanilla-scented finish. (RH) 17.5/20 Inner quote mark (4/2019)
