2008 Côte-Rôtie, Bessanon, Domaine Cuilleron

Sold Out

From 6 hectares of vines in the south of the appellation, with a soil based on gneiss and granite, the Bessanon cuvée contains 10% of Viognier, and is from the more elegant and floral end of the spectrum. The 2008, less tannic than the 2007, has a pleasing mid-palate sweetness of pure Syrah fruit and a silky feminine character. (Simon Field MW - BBR Buyer)
