Jean-Michel Gerin, Côte-Rôtie La Viallière 2016

RRP £46.4

A Côte Rôtie vineyard not well known to consumers but highly respected among producers, La Viallière lies in the northern half of the appellation on pure decomposed mica-schist. That soil imbues the wine with a deep, brooding power that’s lifted by a complex layering of flavors, ranging from earthy black plum to soaring violet perfume.
