In every vinage, the Clusel Côte Rôties are go as-good-as-it-gets-examples that reflect the vintage quite well, always qualitatively beyond reproach. For the 2015s, power and concentration of both fruit and structure are the key notes. These are long distance runners and then some…..get what you can, and thank me later….
“Deep ruby. Mineral- and spice-accented aromas of cherry cola, cassis and olive are complemented by a sexy floral quality that expands as the wine opens up. Juicy, appealingly sweet black and blue fruit flavors show very good clarity and thrust, and a late suggestion of cracked pepper lends spicy bite. Offers a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes with lingering sweetness and velvety, building tannins.” 91-93 Josh Raynolds
