Domaine Christophe Billon Côte Rôtie Les Elotins 2016
$90.00 / bottle
Release Date June 3, 2021
Vintages #: 20386
750ml bottle
Structured & Refined

At the very top of the hill overlooking the northern Rhône town of Ampuis, you’ll find the humble yet rising-star estate of Christophe Billon. Since 1991, Christophe has crafted honest, authentic Syrah wines from the steep, terraced slopes of Côte-Rôtie. His family’s roots here go back generations; the family’s oldest parcel of vines can trace its origins back to the end of the second world war.

Truly a working winemaker, Christophe for years balanced the demands of his job at Guigal with his own domaine, finally dedicating himself completely to the family project in 2007. His son, Corentin, after finishing his wine studies in 2015, now works at his father’s side.

A selection of fruit from four separate parcels, representing equally the two terroir “sides” of Côte-Rôtie, ‘Les Elotins’ is a floral beauty, dense and refined, beautiful today yet also structured for the long haul.

The traditional blend of Syrah with just a touch of Viognier makes this excellent example of the power, finesse and understated elegance of Côte-Rôtie. Aromas of black cherries, raspberries, pepper dominate and the palate is full bodied and deep with present yet fine-grained tannins.
