Exceptional Wine

Hook and Ford

Cote-Rotie Domain Jean-Michel Gerin, Champin le Seigneur 2013


This Cote Rotie comes from the wonderful 2013 vintage. Warm days and cool nights and a long growing season have allowed for both great ripeness and a light elegance. Full of complexity and enticing flavours of berry, spice and a refreshing minerality, this wine is built to age beautifully.

Jancis Robinson gives this 17.5/20:

"Similar floral character to top Burgundy – Volnay or Vosne, perhaps. Some sweet oak on the finish. Pronounced black fruit on the palate with impressive persistence, and lots of woodspice to finish. (Drink between 2018-2033)"

Vinous gives this 92/100:

"Bright purple. Heady, expansive aromas of black and blue fruits, potpourri and incense, with smoky Indian spice and vanilla notes emerging with air. Juicy blackberry and blueberry flavors are complicated by hints of smoky minerals and candied violet, with a peppery quality adding bite. Velvety tannins give shape to the long, spicy finish, with the floral note echoing."
