Description

92 points Vinous
"Opaque ruby. Mineral-accented aromas of blackberry, cherry-cola and violet are complemented by a hint of exotic spices. Sappy and appealingly sweet, offering palate-staining black and blue fruit, floral pastille, smoky mineral and spicecake flavors and a subtle hint of salty olive paste. Finishes sweet and long, displaying resonating mineral and floral notes and steadily building tannins."

92 points Jeb Dunnuck
"Including 3% Viognier, Billon's 2018 Côte Rôtie Les Elotins is the entry level cuvée of the estate and offers a meaty, black-fruited style that carries medium to full-bodied richness, plenty of tannins, and notes of chocolate, crushed rocks, ground herbs, and pepper. Give bottles 2-3 years of bottle age."

Vinous Reverie Notes
A classic blend of Syrah (95%) and Viogner (5%) from different plots of the Billon’s Cote Rotie holdings. from vines averaging 30 years of age grown on shale. 100% Hand picked, the grapes are vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with twice daily punch downs. The finished wine is matured in 1-2 yr old French oak for 24 months.
