Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

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.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

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.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
