Maison Les Alexandrins Côte-Rôtie Rouge - 2015

AOC Côte Rôtie



Brilliant ruby. Vibrant cherry and black currant aromas are complemented by black pepper, violet and olive nuances. Taut and structured on entry and then more fleshy in the midpalate, offering fresh dark berry and bitter cherry flavors sweetened by a suave floral pastille accent. Shows very good lift and delineation on the gently tannic finish, which hangs on with strong, floral-dominated persistence.

A more earthy style with authentic blackberry fruit and a floral lift. The underlying oak works well in support. There is lots to enjoy here: freshness behind the generous ripe fruit, as well as a gentle lick of aniseed and liquorice.

A bright, fresh style, with pomegranate, red currant and damson plum fruit coursing through, accented by a mouthwatering mineral edge and backed by light tobacco and bay leaf accents on the finish. Pure and very focused. Best from 2019-2030.

A lighter and elegant redder-fruited expression with a wealth of raspberry, mulberry and peppery fragrant kick. The palate has a very composed, elegant and even-paced flow. Extremely resolved with attractive balance. Drink now.
