Average critic rating : 91.0 points



The fuller-bodied 2005 Cote Rotie Cote Rozier is not as charming or fruit-forward as its younger sibling. It is broodingly dense with a formidable opaque color, high tannins, impressive concentration, and a full, well-balanced finish. As the wine sits in the glass, hints of pepper and tapenade emerge. ||These two brothers have come of age over the last decade. In the past, much of the crop was sold to negociants, but now all of it is estate bottled. The Bonnefonds farm just under 14 acres in Cote Rotie and 2.5 in Condrieu. Production is approximately 12,000-15,000 bottles of the Cote Rozier, 3,000-4,000 bottles of Les Rochains, and 2,000 cases of the regular cuvee. Everything is destemmed, and the wines are made with both pump-overs and punch-downs. The single vineyard wines see as much as 85-90% new French oak, and the classic Cote Roties see 25-30% new wood. There is no filtration. Wine Advocate.February, 2008
