Because of the rather sudden closing, many of the great wines from the excellent vintages were never rated (there are some out there on back vintages), but we can promise you will be seriously impressed. Silky, concentrated, lavishly rich, and mouthcoating, packed with cocoa bean, espresso, blue fruits for days, clove and cola, blackberry essence, violets, and a hint of bay leaf...incredibly long and polished, too.
Serious stuff for a SONG, just...wow. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED, though!!
PAIRING IDEAS: A beautifully-made beef bourguignon would hit the spot here, with some buttery noodles and some crusty bread and cheese!
MUSIC SUGGESTIONS: Because of the inspiration for the wine name, you HAVE to bump the "Exile on Main St." album! This really is one of the all-time great albums!
About the Producer
Nellcôte focuses on producing premium limited production Napa grown and produced wines – sourcing from a variety of highly regarded vineyards within the Napa Valley. Founder Tyler Olbres took the unusual step for a Napa producer of releasing a rosé as his inaugural wine (2013 was his first vintage).
Both the wines and the name Nellcôte are highly personal to Tyler. While growing up in New England he later spent 10 years in his 20’s and early 30’s living and helping restore his family home in southern France. It was during this time that Tyler was introduced to fine gastronomy and wine experiences up and down the coastline of southern France including in Monaco. He came to know a number of well-regarded chefs and sommeliers and refined his palate on mostly French wines.
