WTN: 1995 Jaboulet Cote Rotie Les Jumelles

by David M. Bueker » Sun Jan 07, 2007 6:49 pm

Popped and poured. Smoky, leathery, dusty fruit and quite high acidity. Well balanced though and delicious. Needs more air. There's a hint of violets in the nose.

More later...
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.

Havent' had this wine specifically, but I've had a couple 95 No Rhones in the last year and they've all been stunning. This vintage seems to be in a real sweet spot.
