Gaillard Cote-Rotie Rose Pourpre 2005
Black fruits with a stewed compote complexity; newly sawn wood. A classic Cote Rotie with terrific structure.
- wine tasting note by LAC, March 2010
94 Points - "Very polished, with suave toast and cocoa notes woven into the dark currant paste, fig sauce and chocolate ganache flavors. Long, plush finish has great drive and buried minerality. Best from 2010 through 2020."
- Wine Review by J.M., Wine Spectator Insider, Jan '08
Winged beasties with dark meat like duck, goose, squab, and griffins. Hooved game. Roasted meats.
