  1. 1999 Jean-Michel Gerin Côte-Rôtie Les Grandes Places

    1. Licorice, flowers, cherry liqueur, strawberry, wet earth, pepper, herbs and bacon fat scents get you on your way to a sensuous, exotic, fresh wine, filled with a sweet kirsch, blackberry, liqueur filled finish. The wine has nice lift, length and complexity, plus it's drinking in the sweet spot. Popped and poured, the wine began to fade about 2 1/2 hours after opening. It's close to peak and while there is no rush to pop a cork, it's not going to get much better, Sadly, it's almost impossible to find with a production that is close to 150 case for the world.

    2. Intoxicating scents of licorice, flowers, earth, plums, smoke, cherries, pepper and stone are present the moment the cork is popped. Sweet, ripe, refined, elegant and sensuous, this fresh wine ends with rich, layers of exquisite, polished, pure, black cherries and spice. This is drinking perfectly today and should improve over the next several years. If you're a Cote Rotie fan, while hard to find, it's the effort to locate a few bottles.

    3. 99 Gerin Les Grandes Places Cote Rotie pops form the glass with aromatics of bacon fat, kirsch, wild strawberries, back raspberry, cinnamon, black cherry and white pepper. Rich, sexy, plush, round, elegant textures coat your mouth. The feeling of fresh ripe fruit with an essence of purity, coupled with black cherries, kirsch and a hint of licorice lasts for close to 40 seconds. This wine is produced in very small quantities. But it's worth seeking out as it offers a compelling expression of Cote Rotie.
