Eye : Deep dark colour with mauve tints. Nose : Spices, black fruits and delicate oak aromas. A dense, expressive and intense nose. Palate : A tannic and racy wine. Aromas of prunes, blackberry and vanilla. Powerful, concentrated and structured palate. Overall : A wine from a tannic and muscular vintage due to the hot climate. Solid tannins, well rounded by long oak ageing.

This is frankly toasted, with mocha and bacon notes leading off. The core of dark currant and cherry preserve flavors has the stuffing to match, while singed bay leaf and dried sage accents infuse the finish. Shows the cool profile of the vintage, along with very admirable depth and ripeness. Best from 2021 through 2038. 2,500 cases made.

Despite recent bottling, the 2014 Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis looks considerably better than the 2013. It's a bit closed on the nose, but it shows more concentration, a rich, velvety mouthfeel and a long finish. Cedar and herb notes accent red fruit in this charming middleweight that should be approachable young.
