Wine AdvocateThe inky, mostly opaque-colored 2013 Côte Rôtie Classique is the most approachable and forward of the three Côte Rôties; it is a blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier that was 50% destemmed and aged two years in 15% new French oak. It offers outstanding notes of raspberries, currants, bacon fat, mulled spice and dried flowers. These lead to a medium-bodied, silky, seamless 2013 that comes up a touch short of density and concentration, yet makes up for it with charm, elegance and balance. Drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years.
