Comprised of vines from throughout the family’s holdings, Levet’s basic Côte-Rôtie spends two years in 600-liter barrels, less than 10% of which are new. The primary vineyard sources are Les Craies and Mollard in Côte Blonde, with younger vines from Moulin and Fontgent in Côte Brune. Agnès used only 20% stems in the vinification of this cuvée in 2021 given the relative lightness of the vintage, and the finished wine is a super-classic “pre-climate-change” rendering of Côte-Rôtie, with dialed-in red fruit, present but polite tannins, and an abundance of sexy spice.
