2018 Xavier Gerard Cote-Rotie

$75.95

Xavier Gerard took over the family’s estate in Northern Rhone in 2013 and quickly earned a reputation for pure, classically rendered Cote-Rotie rivalling the best in the region. He’s moved the estate towards fully organic viticulture, an arduous undertaking on the brutally steep terraces of his estate. With an emphasis and elegance and precision, this is a particularly fine example of Cote-Rotie; give it a good decant if you intend to enjoy it young.
