Wine SpectatorOffers a juicy mix of olive, tobacco and black cherry fruit, with iron and cocoa notes chiming in on the solid, medium-weight finish. Should open a touch more with cellaring. Drink now through 2012. 3,200 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe excellent 2007 Cote Rotie Les Becasses exhibits aromas of melted road tar, bacon fat, tapenade, black currants, and weedy undertones. Medium-bodied, fleshy, and made in a broader style than the 2006, both wines are best drunk during their first 10-15 years of life.

Robert Parker, April 2009
