The impressive, dark ruby/purple-colored 1998 Cote Rotie Les Becasses offers aromas of black olives, smoke, bacon fat, and cassis. This medium-bodied, fresh, tart but concentrated Cote Rotie can be drunk now as well as over the next 10-12 years.

Wonderful, fully mature. Just slightly harsh at first, but after 15 min in the glass it opened up. Bramble, blackberry, cedar, hints of earthiness. Wonderful nose. Has to be at its peak, so drink over the next few years

First bottle I've opened in five or six years - showing much better now. Classical and correct, although not generous, presentation of camphor, bacon, pepper, tapenade, and cranberry. Sparks any spice in food- i.e., there is plenty of acid and a little remaining tannin. Good plus. Not for long keeping: now through 2016.
