2012 Cote Rotie Blonde du Seigneur Georges Vernay

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



Bottled in June of this year, the 2012 Côte Rôtie Blonde de Seigneur comes from the lighter soils of the southern part of the appellation and was completely destemmed and vinified all in stainless steel. Incorporating 3-5% Viognier and aged 18 months in 30% new barrels, it exhibits a complex, refined style to go with pretty rose petal, red raspberry and spice-driven aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, seamless and elegant, with a forward, feminine style, drink it over the coming decade.||Christine Vernay is at the top of her game and readers looking for the best Condrieu has to offer need look no further. In addition, the quality of her Cote Roties (she has roughly three hectare in the southern part of the appellation) has skyrocketed recently. This is an estate that, without a doubt, merits your attention and hard-earned money. eRobertParker.com.December, 2014
