Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 91 (2012 Dec.)

The 2010 Cote Rotie Classique offers sweet, ripe tannins in addition to black raspberry and cassis fruit intermixed with loamy soil, bouquet garni and incense. Ripe and medium to full-bodied, with better integrated oak, it, too, should be drunk over the next decade.

Vinous - Score: 91 (2013 Mar.)

(includes 10% viognier): Inky ruby. Deep, smoky aromas of red fruit liqueur, Indian spices and incense, with a bright mineral topnote. Lush, creamy red and dark berry flavors show good freshness, with a lively mineral spine adding focus. Very deep but shows good energy, with appealing finishing sweetness and juicy persistence.
