B. Levet 2003 “La Chavaroche” Cote Rotie

Upcoming Wine TastingsWine CoursesA Fun Sommelier Test

Typical of the hot 2003 vintage, the nose here is all raisin-y black currants, cherry liqueur, and high-toned spice, as well as a pronounced black peppercorn bite. It actually reminds me, oddly enough, of a fresh-baked pappadum.

The tannins are brilliantly integrated on the palate, 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.
