Cote Rotie, the often sought after, elusive, small production region of the Northern Rhone has many charmers. Some are made from older vineyards, and some are made from “younger” plots of 20 or so years old.
The latter is what defines the 2017 Francois Villard Le Gallet Blanc Cote Rotie.
The Gallet Blanc has it all. Bacon fat, blueberry, black pepper and so good now. It’s got great palate weight, super length, is elegant and totally fruit driven.
That’s why the the 2017 Francois Villard Le Gallet Blanc Cote Rotie is today’s WineSiders’ Wine of The Day!!!
