Domaine Rene Rostaing Cote Rotie La Landonne 2010
- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: Rene Rostaing is one of the main land-owners of this famous granitic vineyard, located just to the north of the town of Ampuis in the area known as Côte Brune. Rene is something of an enigma, a man giving all semblance of being a classicist, yet whose winemaking philosophy, with its use of rotary fermenters and pragmatic approach to destemming, is far from the old-school.
TASTING NOTES: Wine Spectator 11/2013 : 95/100. Dark and brooding in feel, with steeped olive, roasted beef, charcoal and bay leaf notes rolled around a core of plum, black currant paste and roasted fig. A terrific charcoal spine holds this together on the finish. Will need time to unwind in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2030. 500 cases made
