Wine Spectator 92 points - Still quite tight, with flecks of green olive and savory peeking out from the core of coiled red licorice, cherry preserves and damson plum coulis flavors. Best from 2018 through 2023.-J.M.  (Mar 16 2016)

Wine Advocate 90 points - The inky, mostly opaque-colored 2013 Cote Rotie Classique is the most approachable and forward of the three Cote Roties; it is a blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier that was 50% destemmed and aged two years in 15% new French oak. It offers outstanding notes of raspberries, currants, bacon fat, mulled spice and dried flowers. These lead to a medium-bodied, silky, seamless 2013 that comes up a touch short of density and concentration, yet makes up for it with charm, elegance and balance. Drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years. (Dec 2015)

Wine maker notes
this cuvee makes up most of the wine we produce. It comes from vines located above the hamlet of Verenay, mainly in the place known as “La Vialliere”, but also in ”Champon”, ”Le Plomb” and ”Verenay”. The assemblage from these places gives fine, elegant wines, although they do have a definite tannic presence. They can be drunk in the year after bottling, to take full advantage of the youthful aromas or a few years later, when age will have added to their complexity.

For as long as we can remember, in the garden or in the vineyard, farming has always been a part of our family history. We are fervent farmers and fervent winegrowers. This passion for the soil, vines, good wine and good food, means that we continue to follow our family heritage. It drives us to cultivate our Earth in the most natural way possible, whether it is on the vertiginous slopes of Cote-Rotie or on the softer grounds of the Coteaux du Lyonnais. The estate is currently run by Gilbert Clusel, Brigitte Roch and their son Guillaume Clusel. It has eight hectares of vineyards, half a hectare of Condrieu and the rest Cote-Rotie. On three historic vineyards of the Lyonnais Ampuis (Aoc Cote-Rotie), Condrieu (Aoc Condrieu), Millery (Aoc Coteaux Du Lyonnais)
