Dark ruby red in color. The nose presents spices, red berries and delicate oak aromas. The wine opens with round, soft tannin that are followed by rasberry, blackberry and vanilla. Overall, the wine is balanced between scarcely perceptible acidity and tannins which add ageing potential and softened by long ageing in oak.

Not yet bottled, the 2017 Côte Rôtie Brune Et Blonde will be an outstanding wine as well as have 15 years of prime drinking. Rocking levels of kirsch and black raspberry fruits are interwoven with nuances of flowers, incense, herbes de Provence, and spice. This ripe, sexy, medium to full-bodied barrel sample shows the sunny style of the vintage yet has seamless tannins and stays weightless on the palate.

Hints of almond paste and vanilla accent red cherries and raspberries on the nose of the 2017 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde. It's medium-bodied, crisp and crunchy yet finishes ripe and silky. It's another classic vintage that should drink well young yet be capable of up to a decade of cellaring.
