This 2003's acid profile is unusually high, making me wonder if some remedial action had been taken in the cellars. If so, it probably was not necessary in view of how the fermentations actually turned out. Otherwise, this is an attractive, deep ruby/purple-colored Cote Rotie offering a beautiful bouquet of raspberry and cassis fruit, kirsch, and violets in a spicy, medium-bodied, well-made format. Unfortunately, the acidity sticks out like a sore thumb. If it becomes better integrated, this effort will merit a score in the high eighties. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
