Neve (0.75 L)
First bottled on its own in the 2015 vintage, the 2016 Cote Rotie Neve is firm and austere from a vintage that is otherwise reasonably charming. That said, it does offer up plenty of boysenberry fruit, hints of leather and espresso and ample weight on the palate. It should mature into a fine wine by around 2025.
