Gilles Barge “Cuvée du Plessy,” 2007, Côte-Rôtie, France

15 Oct

011Classic Côte-Rôtie, a blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier. Rich, tannic and concentrated with elements of cracked pepper, ripe strawberry and an appealing touch of florality from the Viognier. Delicious wine from a notable Rhône producer. Decant and drink now or lay it down—this one’s a keeper. Grilled red meat or game would be a beautiful table mate. $62
