Duclaux Cote Rotie 'La Germine' 2015
Round, generous and seductive!
95 points Decanter Magazine
Founded in 1928, the estate has mainly been developed by the father, Edmond Duclaux. Today David and Benjamin work manually their 5.5 hectares of vines on the narrow terraces of the Tupin and Semons hillsides. They want their Côte-Rôtie to reflect the southern ‘terroirs’ of the Côte-Rôtie appellation expressing the finesse and the balance of the gneiss soils.
Intense ruby color. Elegant and racy nose, black fruits, spices, hints of smokiness. Dense in the palate with velvety tannins. Long and mineral finish.
