Also with 3% Viognier, the 2018 Côte Rôtie La Brocarde comes from the La Brocarde lieu-dit, which is located in the northern Côte Brune side of the appellation. Its deep purple hue gives way to a rocking Côte Rôtie that has tons of deep blue and black fruits, graphite, crushed rocks, and charred meat-like aromas and flavors. Rich, powerful, and concentrated, it's a bruiser of a Côte Rôtie with fine tannins, terrific purity, and a great finish. It's going to require 4-5 years of bottle age to shed some baby fat, but it's a beauty.
