What the Critics say
Josh Raynolds, vinous.com
Cuilleron's Bassenon Cote Rotie has an elegant bouquet that mixes Syrah’s red berry fruits with Viognier’s floral character (violets). It is elegant, fresh and a little airy on the palate with subtle yet prominent tannins. The grapes are picked from Cuilleron's small piece of south-facing terraced vines on Coteau de Semons, in Tupin-Semons commune. Drink for the primary aromas during the first 5 years, or for the secondary aromas after 10 years.
