Cedric Parpette Cote-Rotie Montmain 2016
Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
The Montmain is floral and richly expresses the ripe dark fruits (blackberries and cassis) of Syrah with an underlying minerality. A great inexpensive introduction to Côte Rôtie for early drinking.
Cédric Parpette did no come from a winemaking background. He worked as a car body repairman for a number of years. In 1986, his father-in-law René Fernandez purchased 2.5 hectares of abandoned vineyard in the Côte Brune part of Côte-Rôtie and spent several years clearing and replanting the southeast facing slope. The vineyard of Montmain is a large, steep slope of micaschist, angled at 35° to 40°, with little top-soil. In 1996, Fernandez added a parcel in the nearby lieu-dit of Le Plomb (where Jamet and Rostaing have vines).
All of the grapes were sold to negotiants, primarily Guigal and Chapoutier, until Cédric took over the doamine in 2003 and decided to hold back some of the grapes to make wine at the domaine. He has Gradually increased the number of bottles he makes, but continues to sell to the negociants out of respect to their loyalty to the domaine.
