Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Distinctive modern-style red. Intense, concentrated, pitch black, with massive, chewy and ripe tannins. Lovely cassis and other fruit, extracted to a maximum, and the charred and tar combo make for an experience. Don't expect a typical Côte-Rôtie here.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 1999 Cote Rotie Seigneur de Maugiron is brilliant. It boasts a black/purple color as well as sumptuous aromas of espresso, graphite, violets, and blackberry/cassis fruit. This is underlined by abundant power, good acidity for definition as well as freshness, and a superb, pure finish. This exceptional Cote Rotie requires 4-5 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2018. Beginning with the 1997 vintage, this firm has made remarkable progress with their Cote Rotie program. The cuvaison lasts twenty days, and Jacques Granges believes in several pigeages (punching down) a day, with pump overs as well. This is a good commercial example. The significant difference in quality between the outstanding 1999 northern Rhone vintage and the above average yet essentially correct 2000 is dramatically evidenced in Delas's wines. The 2000 red offerings reveal charming ripeness, but also the vintage's softness, lightness, and lack of depth.

($15) Saturated bright medium ruby. Tarry cassis, crushed black cherry, violet and spice cake on the primary nose. Lush, smooth and a bit confiture, but not yet especially complex. Still a bit monolithic, in the style of many '99s from this appellation. Finishes with substantial chewy tannins. This was bottled a month prior to my visit.

Wine Varietal: Syrah

While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
