2018 Patrick et Christophe Bonnefond Condrieu Cote Chatillon

I loved the 2018 Condrieu Côte Chatillon. This beauty has clean, pure notes of honeyed lemon, quince, tangerine, and white flowers. With medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful balance, and a great finish, it's well worth seeking out. This comes all from the Côte Chatillon lieu-dit and spent 10 months in 20% new French oak.

2018 Patrick et Christophe Bonnefond Cote Rotie Les Rochains

The 2018 Côte Rôtie Les Rochains will see 20 months in 30% new French oak before bottling. Its deep purple color is followed by a concentrated, ripe, sexy Côte Rôtie that has plenty of blue and black fruits, toasted spice, chocolate, and floral aromas and flavors. Rich, medium to full-bodied, with just a kiss of background oak, it displays a seamless, silky texture and notable balance. It's going to drink nicely for 15+ years.

Aged 18 months in just 10-15% new barrels, the 2017 Côte Rôtie Colline De Couzou is a more forward, juicy effort that has jammy blackberry fruit, notes of ground pepper, spice, and leafy herbs, medium to full body, and a plush, already hard to resist profile. Drink it over the coming decade or so.

2017 Patrick et Christophe Bonnefond Cote Rotie Les Rochains

A wine that spent 20 months in 30% new barrels, the 2017 Côte Rôtie Les Rochains reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as a ripe, sexy style in its black raspberry fruits, notes of toasted spice, dried earth, and flowers, medium to full body, and present yet ripe tannins. It has a touch of background oak, yet it’s hard to resist today, but it will be better with 2-3 years of bottle age and cruise for 10-15 years.
