90 Points Robert Parker
The 1999 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde is also fully mature and gives up mineral-laced aromas of blackberry, underbrush, green olive and spice. Medium-bodied, balanced, seamless and with an overall elegant, yet classical feel, it’s an outstanding bottle of wine to drink over the coming handful of years.
