2014 JEAN-MICHEL STEPHAN Cote Rotie Coteaux de Tupin 75cl (Rhone Valley, France)
Style - Spicy
Grapes - 100% Syrah
Tasting - Spring flowers and blackberry scents fill the glass and the palate is crystalline and softly tannic. There's a Burgundian/Pinot Noir style to the wine so don't expect a Guigal La-La Rotie monster!
FYI: The most natural of all winemakers working in Cote Rotie. Jean-Michel makes tiny quantities of these wines. Proper sommelier catnip this one.
