Cuilleron Cote-Rotie Bassenon 2017

Varieties: 90% Syrah 10% Viognier

A true family estate wine, now in their third generation.

"...an elegant bouquet that mixes Syrah’s red berry fruits with Viognier’s floral character (violets). Elegant, fresh and airy on the palate. Subtle yet prominent tannins."


 

"...the grapes are picked by hand; and then sorted, crushed and partially destemmed in the cellar. Open, temperature-controlled vatting for about 3 weeks, with regular cap-punching and pumping-over. Malolactic-fermented in barriques with native yeasts."
