93pointsDomaine Jean-Michel Gerin 2016 Les Grandes Places (Côte Rôtie)

Cellar Selection

Intensely ripe black-cherry and cassis flavors are layered by prominent smoke, char and licorice in this lavish Côte-Rôtie aged 20 months in new oak. Full bodied and intensely ripe, it will need a few years to integrate all its components, but umami notes of dried porcini, bacon fat and charcuterie are enticing. It appeals best to lovers of plush, sweetly spiced Syrah and should drink better from 2023. Anna Lee C. Iijima
