    Saturated ruby. Candied red and dark berries on the explosively perfumed floral, minerally nose. Stains the palate with intense blackberry and violet pastille flavors, gainingn depth and spiciness with aeration. Rich, energetic and graceful, finishing with superb clarity, power and fruit-driven persistence. One of the highlights of the vintage in the northern Rhone, with the balance to age but offering wonderful upfront appeal as well.

    The 2011 Cote Rotie Cote Blonde saw 100% stems and a small percentage of Viognier. While I liked it a tad more last year, it showed beautifully here as well, with a perfumed, forward and medium to full-bodied profile to go with classic olive, garrigue and raspberry aromas and flavors. This is Cote Rotie at its most refined and elegant, and it should be even better in another 2-3 years and evolve nicely through 2031.

  • Rene Rostaing is unarguably one of the most talked-about producers in Cote-Rotie. He started as a fairly small producer, but his wines have grown in quality, reputation, and production. He vinifies his parcels separately and makes his wines in a more traditional fashion. New oak is kept to about 10% to guarantee the elegant style which is so spectacular in the area. Vintages to look for are 2003, 2001, 1999, 1991, 1985, 1978, and 1971.
