Size=750 ml, RP[90]

"The wise and experienced Gentaz was in agreement with my observation that 1991 was consistently better for Cote Rotie than 1990. The 1991 displays additional body and concentration, as well as the potential for a longer evolution in the bottle. Neither of these vintages will be nearly as long-lived as the exceptional 1988 Gentaz produced. The 1991 offers a deep ruby/purple color, a sweet nose of roasted black-raspberry fruit, saddle leather, ground beef, and damp earth. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, with a velvety texture, excellent to outstanding concentration, and a long, sweet, round finish. If you object to the leathery, meaty smells of the "brett" yeast, then avoid this wine." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Dec 10, 1992)
