Rostaing Ampodium 2011
27 October 2017

Rene Rostaing is a revered name amongst Rhone lovers and there is no doubt that the La Landonne and Cote Blonde single vineyard wines rank as two of the best and longest lived Cote Rotie money can buy. For those in the intermediary period, either anxious about making the leap, or waiting on wines to mature, Rene’s Ampodium is the wine to plump for. Tasting the 2011 recently reminded us what great value this wine is; capturing all the Rostaing hallmarks of subtle textures, fine sophisticated fruit and the piercing schistous minerality of classic Cote Rotie, available at a snip of the price. The only difference is that Ampodium is a blend of vineyards, rather than a single site expression, and yet it includes fruit from such noble terroirs as La Viailliere and is made with the same steady hand; almost no new oak and an emphasis on whole bunch fermentation to capture freshness. The 2011 is in a lovely place today and is very rewarding for its open profile and generously scented, sumptuous fruit. With autumn fully upon us, it is a wine that sits handsomely on the top dining tables, delivering oodles of pleasure with bags of character.
