I loved the 2017 Cote Rotie Chateau D'Ampuis. It's a ripe, expressive barrel sample overflowing with notions of black raspberries, cassis, vanilla bean, and incense. Medium to full-bodied, rounded, and silky, it has lots of ripe tannins as well as stunning balance. It's in the same ballpark as the 2016 yet shows the warmer, sunny nature of the vintage.
