Julien Pilon Côte-Rôtie "La Porchette" '16

2016 Julien Pilon Côte-Rôtie "La Porchette," Northern Rhône, France

There comes a time when a producer noted as "one to watch," simply becomes one of the greats. 

That's the case for the young Julien Pilon. Starting his domaine in 2010, after spending time in the Languedoc, he has quickly become known for his exceptional work with the classic white grape varietals of the region. His goal was to make fresh white wines, yet still characteristic of their terroir. 

He produces just one red, from the famed appellation of Côte-Rôtie. Called "La Porchette," this is 100% Syrah from three different parcels in Côte-Rôtie, some grown in granite and some in schist. Aged in a combination of barrique and demi-muid, it sees just 10% new oak. 

A wine that can be decanted and enjoyed know, but will ultimately benefit from aging, drinking best from 2021-2030+.
