  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 97

    Offers stunning cut and precision, with dark, winey fig and blackberry fruit completely harnessed by taut iron and racy acidity. There's a gorgeous smoldering black tea leaf note, with flecks of charcoal and graphite, studding the finish.

    Opaque purple. Deeply pitched aromas of cherry pit, blackberry, licorice and woodsmoke. Broad, palate-coating dark fruit flavors show liqueur-like depth and power, with by slow-building minerality providing lift. Very rich but surprisingly lithe, with strong finishing thrust and harmonious tannins that add grip. This impressively powerful, well-balanced wine should age slowly.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 100

    The 2009 Cote Rotie La Belle Helene is another perfect wine. Made in a completely different style than the more structured, mineral-laced 2010, the 2009 is a flamboyant, exuberant effort with nearly over-the-top ripeness and fruit. However, it is extremely supple, sexy and bursting with complexity, revealing notes of truffles, graphite, black raspberries, espresso roast, spice box, tapenade and bouquet garni. The wine's richness, full-bodied, massive fruit impact and 50-second finish are amazing.

    Very delicate nose of sausage and leather, but otherwise at $300 seems overpriced. Ten plus years at least.
