YVES CUILLERON COTE-ROTIE "BASSENON" 2015

11 Current Inventory

93 POINTS, Vinous. "Glass-staining ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of ripe dark fruits, potpourri and olive; a zesty mineral nuance adds vivacity. Deeply concentrated blueberry, spice cake and floral pastille flavors take on suggestions of cola and candied licorice on the back half. Finishes on a suave note of candied flowers, delivering mounting tannins and superb energy and focus."

"Bassenon" is produced from vineyards in the southernmost stretch of the Côte-Rôtie appellation.This 2015 bears the mark of the vintage with its dark, concentrated character, spicy sandalwood and fresh-ground black pepper but the overwhelming impression is one of finesse wedded to a high-toned complexity.
