Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde, Etienne Guigal 2014
Round blackberry aromas – smells very ripe. Leathery but light and racy. Not big and bold but true to Côte Rôtie classicism. This should please traditionalists. Chewy. 2020 - 2030

Recently bottled, the 2014 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde spent 36 months in half new and half second-fill oak. It’s a bit lightweight perhaps, but it boasts pretty cherry and raspberry fruit accented by cedar, pepper and herbal notes. It finishes on a silky, mouthwatering note, so drink the 2014 while waiting for other vintages to mature. 2018 - 2030
