Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep

ABV:
13.5 %

Notes

Cote Rotie pf muscle and power, explosive dark fruits steadied by a firm tannic spine. Ripe bramble fruit mixed with of lots of earth pepper and smoke character, ripe but really driven and robust. Impressive. All whole bunch in 15 as usual for everything. Fermented with whole bunches and aged in large demi-muid casks, a maximum of 10% of which are new.

Notes
Inky ruby. Deep-pitched, smoke- and spice-accented aromas of black currant and cherry compote, violet and incense take on a hint of exotic spices with air. Lush and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated black and blue fruit liqueur, licorice and spicecake flavors that are sharpened by a smoky mineral element. Becomes sweeter and livelier with air and finishes extremely long, featuring rounded tannins and lingering spiciness.

René Rostaing

René Rostaing

René’s vineyard fervour, traditional whole bunch fermentation technique and favoured use of 600 litre demi-muid casks which don’t stamp too much wood flavour onto the wine, have for years resulted in some of the Côte Rôtie’s most intense, vital and sought-after wines. His son Pierre took the helm since the 2015 vintage and looks to be filling some qute big shoes. He has kept his father's style, 90-100% whole bunch ferment and less than 10% new oak ageing, whilst adding additional precision and intensity to the wines. The Cuvée Ampodium is a blend dominated by the produce of La Viaillère and Tupin that always shows a hallmark refinement and juiciness. His La Landonne is typically muscular and backward when young that after 8+ years develops into a whole spectrum of savoury meat and hedgerow fruit flavours. However, his flagship wine, Côte Blonde goes against the grain of the widespread clichés about the effeminacy and delicacy of Côte Blonde wines. Although it does benefit from the floral effects of the 2-3% Viognier added to the blend, its density and concentration requires a barrel maturation longer than the others and at least ten years bottle age is needed before it is approached. Chiselled and intense, it offers a saline chalk note to the brambly fruit. This has become one of the most respected estates in the region.
