(2005 Vintage) Wine Advocate Review Rated 92 The 2005 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde is the fullest-bodied, most complete and deepest of this quartet. Its dark garnet color is followed by a big, sweet nose of bacon fat, cassis, jammy cherries, and peppery herbs. Full-bodied and lush, it is ideal for drinking over the next 10-12 years.
