As always the Côte Rôtie is an asemblage of grapes sources from both Cotes, with the lieus-dits of Tupins, Semons But de Mont, Boudin and Les Roziers all featuring to some degree. The wine is more elegant than the 2009, which Stéphane describes as  En millésime solaire E He adds that 2009 is the vintage for the ‘grand publique Ewhereas 2010 will be for the connoisseur, for the purist. For the English market, he adds, helpfully. It certainly appeals to this palate with its combination of ripe fruit, balancing acidity and beautifully silky tannins.
