Wine Critics Notes:

Vinous - Score: 97 (2015 February)

Saturated ruby. An explosive, sharply delineated bouquet evokes fresh red and dark berries, Asian spices, candied flowers and incense, all lifted by a bright mineral overlay. Silky, sweet and utterly seamless on the palate, offering vibrant raspberry, violet pastille and spicecake flavors that spread out and gain depth with air. Manages to be both powerful and lithe, with superb back-end thrust and silky tannins shaping the endless floral finish. A drop-dead gorgeous, graceful and impeccably balanced example of Côte-Rôtie and one of the great wines of a truly great vintage. My daughter might have to skip a year of college so that I can buy a dozen cases of this; she'll understand when she grows up and has kids of her own.
