Cote-Rotie 'Madiniere' comes from a 2 hectare south/southeast-facing plot planted to 100% Syrah on schistous soils in Ampuis. The name Madinieres refers to a stream flowing nearby.
Saturated violet. A highly fragrant bouquet evokes fresh black and blue fruits, exotic spices, olive and candied flowers, and a smoky mineral element builds as the wine opens up. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering intense, mineral-accented boysenberry, bitter cherry and violet pastille flavours and a touch of licorice. The floral note returns on the impressively long finish, which features well-knit tannins and lingering spiciness.
