Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

The 2006 Cote Rotie La Belle Helene is sensational. Made primarily from destemmed fruit, it offers up notes of camphor, smoked meats, creme de cassis, raspberries, and hints of licorice as well as underbrush. Dense and full-bodied with stunning concentration, a multilayered mouthfeel, and a superb finish, it should drink beautifully for two decades.

($226) Bright ruby. Energetic red berry and floral aromas convey a stronger sense of elegance than the Lancement today. Silky and sweet, with deep but lively raspberry and wild strawberry flavors reminiscent of pinot noir. The floral element gains strength on the finish, which refuses to let go of the palate. I find this irresistible right now.

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.
