Clusel-Roch Cote-Rotie 'Grandes Places' 2016Regular price $133 Save $-133.00
Headed by Gilbert and Brigit Clusel, this Cote-Rotie estate’s 3.5 hectares lay across the region’s signature granitic slopes, with the original vineyard site planted in 1935 by Gilbert’s grandfather. Here, vines are dedicated to Serine, a low yielding clone of Syrah, farmed organically since the 1990s. ‘Les Grandes Places’ is vinified 30% whole-cluster, showing notes of black cherry, mulberry, and smoke. Rich and firm, with muscular tannins.
