Levet Cote Rotie La Chavaroche
2018 Levet Cote Rotie La Chavaroche ...$219.99 / 1.5 liter
Powerful, spice- and mineral-laced black/blue fruit scents show superb focus and pick up suggestions of smoked meat, licorice and violet with air. Sappy, deeply concentrated and pure, offering juicy blueberry, boysenberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that are firmed by a spine of tangy acidity. Blends power and vivacity with a sure hand and finishes extremely long and minerally, with supple tannins building steadily and in harmony with the wine's assertive dark fruit. 100% whole clusters; all neutral foudres.
Rated 96-97/100 Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media
