M. Chapoutier 1999 Les Bécasses (Côte Rôtie)

Cellar Selection

You couldn't mistake this Côte-Rôtie for anything else: Floral-herb aromas are bolstered by smoky green tobacco, white-pepper and cranberry. It's ultrastructured, with a strong iron-mineral core that needs at least two, but as many as 10, years of cellaring to soften. Tart red-berry, even animal, flavors cushion the steely core flavors and round out the finish.
