Betz Family 2017 La Côte Rousse Syrah (Red Mountain)

#89 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2020
Return to List

For the first time, this wine is blended with a touch of Viognier (3%). It was partially fermented in concrete, and the aromas are lifted with notes of huckleberry, raspberry, herb, orange peel, black pepper and abundant minerals. The blue-fruited palate is silky, soft and fresh, with a fine sense of acidity and tannin structure. It brings a lot of finesse as well. Best after 2024, with a long life after that. Sean P. Sullivan
