Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 91+ (2011 Dec.)

From the Cote Blonde, the 2009 Cote Rotie Domaine des Pierrelles reveals classic notes of black olives, black raspberries, sweet cherries, meat and earth. Ripe and medium-bodied with sweet tannin, it comes across as structured and closed, so give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 10-15 years. It is unquestionably the finest Cote Rotie Jaboulet has produced since the 1960s.

Vinous - Score: 92 (2012 Mar.)

Deep ruby. Aromas of red and dark berry preserves, floral oil and licorice, with a mineral topnote. Juicy, sharply focused black raspberry and floral pastille flavors show impressive energy and pick up a smoky quality with air. The mineral quality carries through onto the finish, which features a bracing bitter cherry quality.
