Friday Flash Sale: Rugged, Refined, Vibrant 95pt Côte Rôtie

Today only, 15% off Bonnefond’s exceptional 2019 Rozier

Christophe Bonnefond’s Côte Rôties have matured in style in recent years. Once described by Robert Parker as “extroverted,” the Bonnefonds now make elegant, layered, transcendent wines full of both depth and lift. Vinous reviewer Josh Raynolds calls them “superb” and with the Northern Rhône’s recent half-decade of terrific consecutive vintages, this is a source for some of the most exciting reds in our cellar.

Today we’re suggesting Bonnefond’s 2019 Côte Rôtie “Rozier,” a vineyard immediately abutting the famous La Landonne. This is always Bonnefond’s most elegant and expressive wine, and the 2019 is a knockout. Raynolds gave 95 points, finding “dark berry preserve, smoked meat, potpourri and olive…closes very long and smoky.”

This will easily age another decade, but with a lamb roast, a decanter, and a few hours’ patience it’s a perfect match for the arrival of autumn.
