Maison Les Alexandrins Côte-Rôtie Rouge - 2015

AOC Côte Rôtie

La Syrah, cépage roi de l'appellation Cornas, marque ce vin par sa puissance et sa complexité remarquables. Un vin élégant aux tanins de velours, parfaitement équilibré, des arômes de fruits noirs et fumés viennent souligner sa belle structure.


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.

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.

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.

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.

Clean, classic and downright elegant, it offers terrific notes of black raspberries, spring flowers and hints of cured meats. A quintessential Côte Rôtie, this beauty has no hard edges, integrated acidity and fine tannin, all of which allow it to drink nicely today, yet age for 15 years or more.
