The vines for La Rosine grow just beyond the southern edge of Côte Rôtie, in the Collines Rhodaniennes appellation. In Stéphane’s hands, you could call this pure Syrah from less prestigious origins a “mini” Côte Rôtie: even-more-so in this glorious 2015 vintage. Aged for 12 months in predominately old oak barrels, colour is deep ruby-purple, aromas being pretty and perfumed. Palate is fresh, bright and focused, flavours combining black cherry fruit with peppery spice and an attractive hint of smoked meatiness. The finish is long and tense. For £11.50 per bottle (in bond) this is outstanding value (for drinking 2017-2021+).
