Cote Rotie - 03/30/08 10:00 PM
Today I have tried a "Cote Rotie" for the first time. This is supposedly the rarest and finest Cotes du Rhone appelation. I bought a bottle at a wine fair for 25 Euro ( Far more than I'm normally willing to spend, but I had tasted it beforehand and it really was that good). Tasted much oakier and more complex than other cotes du rhone I've had (I'm quite a fan of Gigondas and Vacqueyras). Anybody else tried it? Is it available in the States/UK?
