"I loved the 2012 Cote Rotie les Becasses. Medium-bodied, nicely textured and with good richness, it gives up a terrific perfume of black raspberry and raspberry fruits, spring flowers/violets and underbrush. It's already a great drink, but will evolve nicely through 2024."
Vinous - 91/100
"Bright ruby. Expressive aromas of cherry compote, blueberry, potpourri and peppery spices. Plush, pliant and seamless on the palate, offering smoky blueberry, mineral and bitter chocolate flavors complicated by suggestions of candied flowers and licorice. Finishes long and sweet, with supple tannins and repeating spiciness. A little air goes a long way here."
