B. Levet 2003 Cote Rotie “La Chavaroche”

Posted by in News

Typical of the hot 2003 vintage, the nose here is all raisin-y black currants, cherry liquour, and high-toned spice, as well as a pronounced black peppercorn bite. It actually reminds me, oddly enough, of a fresh-baked pappadum. On the palate, the tannins are brilliantly integrated, and there’s definitely more fresh fruit here than the nose lets on. It’s a beautiful wine right now, though those tannins and the balancing acidity promise a long life ahead.
