Côte Rôtie les Becasses, Maison M. Chapoutier 2018

Tasting Notes

The classic 2018 Côte Rôtie Les Bécasses comes from a mix of schists and gneiss soils and was brought up in 25% new French oak. It has wonderful notes of black raspberries, spiced meats, flowery incense, and sandalwood. Beautifully balanced, medium-bodied, and incredibly elegant, it's not a blockbuster but has quintessential Côte Rôtie elegance and complexity. It's ideal for drinking over the coming decade.
