2020 René Rostaing Côte-Rôtie "Côte Blonde", Rhone Valley, France
There are 2 units left in stock.
ABOUT THIS WINE
The Rostaing mystique grows further with the prized single-vineyard wines, La Landonne and Côte Blonde. These are extraordinary expressions of two very different terroirs. Landonne is dark and powerful, while Côte Blonde is lithe and explosive; yet both are imbued with the finesse for which Rostaing is famed.
These grapes come from 2 parcels of 40+ year-old vines. 98% Syrah and 2% Viognier to brighten and lift the wine. Maceration can vary from 7-20 days. Aged in a mix of 225 and 600 liter barrels. (about 7% new)
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
René Rostaing founded this estate in 1971 and absorbed top sites, plus invaluable wisdom, from earlier giants like uncle, Marius Gentaz, and father-in-law, Albert Dervieux.
The domaine today commands perhaps the finest selection of Côte Rôtie vineyards in private hands; with prime holdings in La Landonne, Côte Blonde, La Viaillière, Côte Brune and more.
Today’s wines are models of classic balance and perfume; crafted with deep respect for traditional techniques like long macerations, inclusion of stems, and limited usage of new wood.
