Description

“Good bright red. Pretty, floral nose combines raspberry, rose petal and saline minerality. A silky, savory midweight given definition and lift by tart red berry, violet and spice flavors. The wine’s sweetness is nicely countered by its penetrating character. A classically dry 2014 with terrific energy, this has turned out very well. Romain Taupenot considers La Riotte to be an underrated premier cru.” 92 Steve Tanzer

“The expressive nose reflects aromas from the red side of the fruit spectrum along with gentle earth, floral and sauvage hints. While the medium weight flavors are not quite as refined as those of the Combe d’Orveau they do possess a bit more power on the delicious, succulent and detailed finish. This too is lovely. 91/2024+” Allan Meadows
