2013 Domaine Gilles Barge Côte-Rôtie Coeur de Combard

Cellar Tracker Community 92 points (as of 4/29/19)

John Gilman 94+ points (Jan/Feb 2018) - Domaine Barge has decided to label their cuvée from their newly reclaimed vineyard of Le Combard as “Coeur de Combard” in vintages that they deem “exceptional”, as is the case with the 2013. The wine was showing even better at the domaine than when I last tasted it ten months ago in New York, offering up a deep and very precise bouquet of cassis, black olives, espresso, venison, stony soil tones and a smoky top note. On the palate the wine is pure, full and rock solid at the core, with impressive complexity, fine-grained ripe tannins and outstanding soil signature on the very long, perfectly balanced finish. This is very old school in style, coming in at only 12.5 percent alcohol and offering the potential for great evolution in the bottle. This is going to be the finest vintage yet from the reclaimed Le Combard vineyard, since the Barge family first start bottling it again in 2007. (Drink between 2027-2075)
