Cote-Rotie "Le Gallet Blanc"
Opaque, bright-rimmed ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes black raspberry and boysenberry, incense, candied violet and smoky minerals. Intense, palate-staining black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors are complicated by exotic spice and mineral notes that become stronger with air. Closes on a youthfully tannic note, showing outstanding delineation, impressive persistence and sweet dark berry notes that hang on tenaciously.
