Wine of the Day – 2007 Bernard Burgaud Côte-Rôtie

2007 Côte-Rôtie, Bernard Burgaud
£260.00 per case of 12 in-bond (discounted from £279.00)

The direct translation of Côte-Rôtie, “Roasted slope”, gives a very accurate idea of what the growing conditions are in this village. It benefits from a subsoil of granite, which perfectly suits the main grape variety, Syrah, Producers are allowed (but not obliged) to add up to 20% of Viognier to the blend, and the wines produced here combine the beautifully dense and perfumed Syrah character to a silky, feminine delicacy of texture which is reminiscent of the best Burgundies. A true insider’s wines until recently, Côte-Rôtie really is one of Syrah’s most impressive avatars.
