Côte-Rôtie ‘Les Triotes’, Domaine Garon 2016 is available to purchase in bond.
The Garon family have been in the Northern Rhône since the 15th Century, but only began to bottle and sell their own wine in 1995. With 5 hectares in Côte-Rôtie, their vineyards are divided with some parcels on the Côte Blonde and some of the Côte Brune. Wines are made traditionally, with grapes crushed in whole bunches, vinified in stainless steel and aged on average in 30% new French oak, with the remainder being aged in older oak, according to the vintage.
The ‘Les Triotes’ is made from Côte Blonde grapes and receives 18 months in 25% new oak. Full-bodied and supple with floral and oak balanced on the nose and fine supple tannins.
“(40% new oak) Opaque ruby. Smoky, mineral-accented cherry and blueberry scents are complicated by hints of vanilla, Indian spices and licorice. Supple and broad on the palate, offering pliant blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter as the wine opens up. A sexy floral pastille note emerges on the clinging finish, which shows excellent clarity and gentle, slow-building tannins. 92 points” Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com, April 2018.
