Domaine Stéphane Pichat Côte-Rôtie Les Grandes Places, 2016

£74.95

Category: France, RHÔNE, Domaine Stéphane Pichat, 2016

Les Grandes Places is made from a single plot on this fabulous site, matured for 36 months in new oak barriques.

“Fermented with the stems, the medium to full-bodied 2016 Cote Rotie Les Grandes Places reflects that to some extent in its complex aromas of bay leaf, mint, green olives and raspberries. Like the other 2016s from Pichat, it’s firm and tannic, yet it seems to have the requisite concentration to age well.” 93 Points, Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski, October 2018

Jeb Dunnuck

More spring flowers, incense, and orange blossom notes emerge from the 2016 Côte Rôtie Les Grandes Places, and it’s incredibly exotic and complex aromatically. With medium-bodied richness and depth on the palate, it has a seamless, supple, elegant texture that carries ripe tannins and plenty of charm. As with the Champon’s cuvée, it’s already approachable but is going to evolve gracefully going forward. 93 Points, December 2018

Food Pairing

The perfect partner to meat dishes. Beef casseroles, hearty stews, Moroccan lamb barbecues and rich sausage casseroles such as a cassoulet.
