Wine of the Week - Martin Clerc Côte-Rôtie

New year, new wine, as we feature our newest producer (with an asterisk). Those who follow the Shiverick portfolio might know the name Louis Clerc as a producer of high-quality Northern Rhône reds and whites. Sadly, Louis passed away in 2007, but since then the domaine has been run by his son, Martin. Now he's reinvented the estate, with even higher standards, and since 2013 has been responsible for winemaking. We are proud to introduce to you Domaine Martin Clerc.

We even have an outstanding score from the Wine Advocate on today's Wine of the Week, the 2016 Côte-Rôtie: "Blended from Bassenon, Tupin and Collet, the 2016 Cote Rotie represents the soft elegance of the southern end of Côte Rôtie. Bay leaf and raspberry notes appear on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate is silky and delicate, marked by hints of tea leaves and red berries."
