Duclaux 2014 La Germine Cote-Rotie, Rhone

$67.99

Very floral, like violets, but there is also some bacon and black olives. Not as grippy or saturated as many northern Rhone reds which makes this a fabulous wine for early drinking with a big slab of something beefy or hearty lamb dishes.

Third generation winemakers farming organically in vineyards that were planted after World War II. The family prefers to spend their time in the vineyards rather than tinker around in the cellar. 95% Syrah with a scant 5% of Viognier splashed in for aromatic beautification. Very floral, like violets, but there is also some bacon and black olives. Not as grippy or saturated as many northern Rhone reds which makes this a fabulous wine for early drinking with a big slab of something beefy or hearty lamb dishes.

Founded by Edmond Duclaux, Domaine Duclaux is now managed by his two sons, Benjamin and David Duclaux. The domaine owns 5.5 hectares in the southern part of the Cote Rotie appellation of the North Rhone in France. Soils here are mostly granite and gneiss on steep - sometimes very steep - hillsides with a south, southeast exposure. Noted for its old vines, some exceeding 100 years in age.
