2019 Côte-Rôtie, Maison les Alexandrins, Rhône

Original price was: £52.50.Current price is: £42.70. inc. VAT

A complex and powerful blend of 98% Syrah and 2% Viognier from one of best vintages in recent history.

Maison Les Alexandrins was established by Nicolas Jaboulet, formerly of the eponymous winery in Tain, the Perrin family from Château de Beaucastel, winemaker Guillaume Sorrel and viticulturalist Alexandre Caso in 2015. The partnership of this ‘micro-négociant’ stemmed from a long-standing friendship, a shared love of gastronomy and an aim to create wines that represent the best of their appellations.

The appellation of Côte Rôtie produces, along with Hermitage, the most sought after wines of the northern Rhône. This wine is made from grapes primarily sourced from the southern part of the appellation – Côte Blonde and Côteau de Tupin. The wine was aged in one year old oak barrels for 15 months.

This a really super glass of wine that has both power and complexity with aromas of violets, black fruit and liquorice. Similar flavours are found on the palate along with excellent concentration and smooth tannins. Already drinking well but will improve with further cellaring.
