Publication Score Comments
The Wine Advocate 91 FOR THE 2012
Leading off the reds, the 2012 Côte Rôtie la Sarrasine (incorporating 3% Viognier) is a pretty, elegant red that exhibits pretty black and blue fruits, underbrush, violets and assorted floral qualities. Fine, silky and seamless, it has the structure to evolve nicely through 2025, but it’s no slouch now either.
Wine Spectator 93 FOR THE 2012 VINTAGE
Shows good intensity, with blackberry, plum and raspberry sauce notes that course along, carried by violet, star anise and savory details. Features a lovely singed wood spice accent on the sneakily long finish. Best from 2016 through 2026. 2,500 cases made. –JM
