2013 Côte-Rôtie, Les Grandes Places, Domaine Jean-Michel Gerin

Sold Out

Higher up — certainly geographically and probably hierarchically — than La Viallière, Les Grandes Places is steep and unforgiving, its soils uncompromising schist, its wines usually marked by a smoky profile and hints of iodine. The 2013 is no exception; élevage exclusively in demi-muid has ensured that the pure northern Syrah profile can vent its full glorious expression. Simon Field MW - Rhône Buyer
