Domaine Garon "Lancement" Côte Rôtie 2018 (Côte Blonde) France

Black raspberries, plum, vanilla spice, dried flowers, and classic meat flavors typically only found in Côte Rôtie emerge from this powerful, concentrated effort that stays perfectly balanced, light on its feet, and graceful. This is what great Côte Rôtie is all about. If you've never experienced the expressive subtleties and nuances that only cool weather, NoRhône Syrah can produce, it's high time! Syrah from the north is unlike any other Syrah you've ever tasted be if from Napa, Shiraz from the Barossa Valley or anywhere else. This is dark, brooding fruit with smoke, and meat, spice and depth. Syrah was born and bred here, and this terroir can't be replicated anywhere else on earth. Lancement benefits from air and the longer it's open the more richness and complexity you get in the glass. And if you have the patience to wait, Garon's wines will pay serious dividends with increased complexity of flavors and textures as the years go on. But it's already beautifully balanced and packed with everything that you could ask for from an expertly crafted Côte Rôtie. Pardon my French, but this is F'n spectacular!
