18th November, 2013 by Andy Young

David & Benjamin Duclaux, La Germine Côte-Rôtie, Rhône 2007

David & Benjamin Duclaux, La Germine Côte-Rôtie, Rhône 2007In The Observer, David Williams wrote: “I get cravings for this type of Syrah, and it can be satisfied by the numerous supple supermarket own-labels from the largest of the northern Rhône’s appellations, Crozes-Hermitage (Asda, M&S) made by the very good local co-operative Cave de Tain, or by Michel Chapoutier’s deeper, meatier example (Crozes-Hermitage 2011, £13.99 if you buy 2, majestic.co.uk).”

In describing this wine he added: “But if I were having, say, a Hawksmoor Porterhouse rather than a Café Rouge minute steak, I’d go for the Duclaux, a haunting mix of brambly berries and iron-in-the-blood-like minerals. (£32.10, vinetrail.co.uk).”
