Vinous: 96 Points

Saturated magenta. A wild highly expressive bouquet evokes an array of black and blue fruits pungent flowers smoked meat licorice and exotic spices with a bright mineral overtone. Offers palate-coating deeply concentrated cassis cherry liqueur smoky bacon fruitcake and licorice flavors that turn livelier as the wine stretches out. The mineral and spice notes build steadily through a strikingly long finish that's framed by strong but velvety tannins that are quickly absorbed by the wine's dense dark fruit. (Drink between 2028-2039)


Wine Advocate: 94-96 Points

Again a prospective sample blended from several barrels the 2020 Cote Rotie Les Journaries (labeled Maestria outside the United States) is a blend of fruit from La Landonne and Côte Brune. It's full-bodied rich and tannic even chewy with plenty of concentration yet it's also fresh and fruit-driven with vibrant notes of purple raspberries and exotic spices. This should be terrific; it just needs a good 5+ years.
