En Primeur Côte-Rôtie ‘Lancement’ Domaine Garon is released for sale.
This domaine owns 5 hectares of vines in Côte-Rotie. The wines are aged on average in 30% new oak barrels for 18 – 24 months, but exact figures vary from cuvee to cuvee. The Lancement lieu dit is on the Côte Blonde and here the wines see up to 50% new oak, for up to 36 months.
“Bright purple. Fresh, mineral-tinged boysenberry, cassis, violet and smoky bacon on the highly perfumed nose, along with a hint of exotic spices. Nervy, sappy and focused on the palate, offering energetic dark fruit, floral pastille and spice cake flavours complemented by liquorice, allspice and bitter chocolate nuances. Finishes sweet, nervy and impressively long, with silky tannins building slowly.”
92-95 points, Josh Raynolds, vinous.com, June 2018.
