Rostaing Cote Rotie Ampodium 2018

Rostaing Cote Rotie Ampodium 2018

100% Syrah. The Rostaing domaine dates to 1971 when René Rostaing began tending a few plots of family vineyards. He had the perfect role model to guide him into a career of classical winemaking: Marius Gentaz, his uncle, and when he married, he acquired a second traditional role model, his father-in-law, Albert Dervieux. Dervieux retired in 1989 and Gentaz followed three years later, giving René a further ten acres of very old vines in some of the appellation’s top sites. Today, René's son, Pierre, guides the domaine, though René is still around, that is one of the few in the Northern Rhône that makes singular wines with a classical heritage from these "roasted slopes". These are wines of intense perfume, and the combination of delicacy and power that comes from no other Syrah. The flagship red, Ampodium (formerly known as “Classique”), is assembled from parcels throughout Côte Rôtie. It is a terrific expression of the appellation, and by itself rivals the appellation’s best.

Tasting Notes
"Aromas of ripe, spice-tinged dark berries and pungent flowers are sharpened by sneaky mineral and spice flourishes. Spicy and focused on the palate, offering juicy blackberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors that are complicated by salty olive and cracked pepper nuances. Fleshes out with air while maintaining liveliness and finishes bright, spicy and quite long, displaying sharp clarity, even tannins and lingering florality." - Josh Raynolds
