Wine Advocate-Parker :
Gerin's 2016 Cote Rotie les Grandes Places comes from Syrah vines planted between 1924 and 1960. Raised in all-new pièces de Bourgogne, it's woody, like the other wines at this address, but it also has the most stuffing and potential. Baking spices and tarry notes mark the nose, while the full-bodied palate comes across as plummy and open, perhaps a bit coarse, with dry wood tannins on the finish. If those successfully integrate--or if you enjoy a bit more oak in your Côte Rôtie than I do--my rating may look stingy.
