Texier's Côte Rotie is velvety textured with an elegance found usually in Burgundian Pinot Noir. Heady and intense with aromas of cassis layered with smoky bacon fat, hints of violet combine with delectable acidity and fine tannins. Typical of Texier, this wine is perfectly balanced. This wine will age gracefully for 10 to 20 years(plus). 100% Syrah grown in southeasterly facing vineyards on the Côte Brune.
