Vidal-Fleury La Chatillonne Cote Rotie 2004

This was the best wine of my recent set of Rhone Valley wine reviews, though it would have been ever better with a more sympathetic use of oak.  At $170 retail in Australia, there are probably better choices available.
88% syrah and 12% viognier.  An aroma of lavender, herbs, oak and apricot kernels.  A palate with an evident oak taste, butter and apricots.  89 points.
