Special Cuvee, Cote Rotie Offer
It is not often we have the opportunity to blend and create our own wines, especially from Cote Rotie. The following special blend has been in partnership with Louis Barruol, the dynamo behind the wines of Chateau St Cosme in Gigondas. I have personally known and worked with Louis for nearly twenty years and, although he is based in Gigondas, his knowledge of the wines and growers in the Northern Rhone is without equal.
The following wine has been a year in the making – tasting, re tasting, blending and blending again. Suffice to say, now the wine is safely in bottle, we feel rather pleased with ourselves.
Louis’ normal Cote Rotie is primarily from the Cote Brune, however, I am from the ‘old school’ and have always loved Cote Rotie from the Cote Blonde hillside. Our final blend is virtually 50/50 Brune and Blonde from two vineyards: Le Plomb and Semons.
There are 288 bottles in total. I hope you like our creation!
