88 points "The flattering, soft 2000 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde lacks the concentration and depth of its older sibling. Nevertheless, it is a good effort in a year when dilution was clearly a problem. It should be drunk during its first 5-7 years of life." Best 2003-2010

90 points "Discreet red, with reserved mineral, wet earth character and a tightly wound tannin structure. The fruit isn't very ripe, but shows up as cherries, blackberries and, in a different register, some floral notes. Very subtle oak, just touches of mocha and spices. Will improve with age. Best from 2005 through 2011. 20,830 cases made. (PM)" Best 2005-2011
