One of the first truly wonderful and eye-opening Cote-Roties I ever tried was the 1978 from Jasmin, a wine Parker called “sensational: an intense, majestically perfumed wine that one could call the most Burgundian of this appellation.”


Indeed, Parker revered these wines so much he said “it is the only place I do not spit.”


It was imported in the US by Kermit Lynch (whose other Cote-Rotie was Gentaz, which now sells for thousands of dollars a bottle, IF you can find it). But I bought it in England, from Robin Yapp (whose portfolio Lynch essentially nicked in the US).


The 2016, I suspect, will not only eclipse the 97-point 2015, but also that legendary 1978. It’s already, for those who’ve reviewed it (Vinous, The Wine Review Online, and British Rhone authority Jonathan Livingstone-Learmonth), the top-scoring young Jasmin Cote-Rotie to date.


Those of you lucky enough to secure a bit of this will have a true cellar treasure – and a rare top French red that’s both irresistibly alluring right out of the gate and which will improve with good cellaring for literally decades.
