Jeb Dunnuck 93 Drink: 2014 - 2024
The 2011 Cote Rotie les Grandes Places, which was just bottled after spending 34.5 months in new oak, is a forward, sexy effort that gives up lots of black raspberry, cassis, spring flowers and savory spice. Medium to full-bodied, textured and already approachable, drink it over the coming decade or more.

I had a fantastic visit with winemaker Stephan Montez, and this top-notch estate fashions a bevy of brilliant Condrieu and Côte Rôtie. During the visit, I was able to do a vertical of each of his Côte Rôties (the les Grandes Places back to '97) but didn't have time to get those reviews into this report. I'll publish those reviews as a stand alone article at a later date.
