Côte-rôtie Wine

 

Cote Rotie, or the “roasted slope,” was first noticed by the Romans for its perfect exposure. In fact, it was the first place in Gaul where grape vines were planted. The schist-rich vineyards are so steep that they must be terraced.

Today, Cote Rotie produces excellent wines from Syrah. Up to 20% Viognier may be cofermented with the red grape, but this is no longer common. Marcel Guigal massively boosted Cote Rotie’s modern reputation; other outstanding producers include Rostaing and Cuilleron.
