LA GERMINE COTE ROTIE, Benjamin & David Duclaux 2006


Product Description

A powerful, well balanced and dense wine that has notes of spring flowers, sweet raspberry and kirsch. Can be cellared for 5 to 15 years.

The Cuvée Germine is the main wine of the estate.  It is typical of the south of the Côte-Rôtie appellation Côte Rôtie. It is composed of 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier. It comes from several vineyards (Coteau Tupin, Tupin, collar, Maison Rouge, hillside Bassenon) all located on a bedrock of gneiss or Migmatite. This wine, both complête and balanced expresses primarily the elegance of the Côte-Rôtie appellation.
