2000 Michel Ogier Cote Rotie Cuvee Belle Helene Syrah - 93 pts
The renowned Belle Helene cuvee is fashioned from a northern Cote Rotie hillside vineyard in a sector called Rozier. Aged 30 months in 100% new French oak with little racking, it is bottled without any clarification. Of the single vineyard Cote Roties, this offering comes closest to resembling one of Guigal’s “La-La’s.” The 2000 Cote Rozier Cuvee Belle Helene is a fleshy, sexy, soft, opulently-styled effort possessing more concentration than most of its 2000 peers. More flamboyant and showy than the monumental 1999, the rich, deep ruby/purple-colored, medium-bodied 2000 offers notes of cassis, licorice, pepper, and white flowers. This harmonious, seamless, extraordinary Cote Rotie should provide immense pleasure over the next 10-12 years. RP
