Louis-Barruol-Cote-Rotie-Boisselee-2015

Louis Barruol, Cote Rotie ''Boisselee'', 2015

“Louis Barruol goes to great lengths to select favorable vineyard sites planted solely to Serine, an ancient clone of Syrah that fell out of favor due to its low yields but is known for its beguiling aromatics. The vinification and élevage also reflect this respect for tradition, with 100 percent whole-cluster fermentation and aging in neutral barrels followed by an unfined, unfiltered bottling in a reverent nod to the past greats of the Roasted Slope.
La Boisselée is a blend of barrels Kermit selects each vintage in Louis’s cellar. This 2016 marries the lieux-dits La Viaillère, Fongeant, Besset, Semons, Le Plomb, and Nève, offering a captivating overview of the appellation. You’ll find all the dark, savory, exotic intensity that makes Côte Rôtie magical: lilies, smoke, graphite, leather, roasted spices… On the palate, this wine is ample, with a full, mouth-filling texture, and the tannins are smooth as silk. As good as La Boisselée is now, it will be glorious in ten years.”
