What the critics say: "The 2018 Cote Rotie La Sybarine is a larger production cuvée and is brought up all in neutral barrels. This saturated purple-hued 2018 offers up textbook notes of sweet red and black fruits, ground pepper, spring flowers, and hints of meatines. Medium-bodied, silky and seamless on the palate, it's a beautiful, elegant wine that's going to drink nicely right out of the gate and keep for over a decade. It should also be a great value."
