The Domaine des Pierrelles is a property of the domains Paul Jaboulet-Aîné since 2006. The first vintage they produced at the Domaine Des Pierrelles was 2009.
Made out of 100% Syrah, the 2012 Côte-Rôtie Domaine des Pierrelles is an elegant wine. It opens up on a range of pure blackberry, raspberry and dried flower notes, with a hint of black olives and spices. Provided with very delicate texture and excessively fine tannins, this 2012 Côte-Rôtie Domaine des Pierrelles shows balance as well as a perfect and precise blend. This makes it accessible already, with an ageing potential up to 2026.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
There's roughly 500 cases of the 2012 Côte Rôtie Domaine des Pierrelles, and it comes from the mostly granite soils as opposed to schist. Elegant, seamless and medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, it exhibits impressive notes of crushed rock, ground herbs, olive and spiced fruits. While it will dish out plenty of enjoyment now, it has the balance and concentration to evolve for 10-15 years.
