Yves Cuilleron Cote Rotie – Madiniere 2010, France

Country: France

Colour / Style: Red

Featured in: Episode 10

As chosen by: Joe Fattorini

This is just beginning to emerge from a gawky youth. A wine like this seems expensive compared to Cote du Rhone down the road. But it is a tenth the price of its real peers in Bordeaux or Burgundy. It has a complex, fragrant, sweet nose and dark raspberry palate with a beguiling, graphite pencil character that you’ll talk about all week. Serve it simply with dark game.
