The 2010 Cote Rotie Fortis smells like the perfume house of Chanel. Very intense with notes of spring flowers, tropical fruits, raspberries, smoke and frying bacon, it possesses a superb, full-bodied texture and decent acidity. Pure, rich and impossible to resist, it should drink well for 12-13 years. 

One of my favorite young growers in the Northern Rhone is Stephan Montez. Both 2010 cuvees are spectacular.
