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.
