87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2005

($70; Rostaing's only Cote-Rotie bottling in 2002) Good medium red-ruby. Somewhat vague but ultimately complex aromas of black cherry, blackberry, purple flowers, leather and pepper.

Rostaing describes this wine's overriding character as "a vegetal pepperiness. " Not bad.
