Côte Rôtie Maison Rouge - Bottle
Maison rouge is the emblematic cuvée of our house. Resulting from a plot selection, we only produce it when we deem it suitable to represent the qualities of the estate. It is rich and powerful with present tannins, refined by a long aging in oak barrels. It is a wine of character which arouses all our attention and which should be kept for a few years to best reveal its potential.
