Vidal-Fleury 2017 Brune et Blonde (Côte Rôtie)

This perfumed, smoky Syrah (with just a dusting of Viognier) highlights the duality of grapes matured on the light-hued gneiss and silica soils of the Côte Blonde alongside the darker clay and schist soils of the Côte Brune. Fresh-footed yet supple cassis and raspberry flavors are etched by shards of stone and acid. Matured three years in a combination of new and older oak, it's a subtly spiced red that finishes on lingering notes of licorice and soft, feathery tannins. Best now–2027. Anna Lee C. Iijima
