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.

  • Zuf back to your question, I opened Yves Cuilleron Cote Rotie 2005 today it is delicious balanced good aftertaste it is a wine I would buy again,I do have another bottle, today I am not comparing it against another Syrah, so I guess since I didn’t taste it when I bought it I don’t know if it has gone down hill, but I am enjoying it, the only des...

  • Yes, I agree with the comments so far.  Of course, some of the Cabs, Zin, Syrah (and similar cepages) will last 25 years - or should - but then, as EM rightly says, the vast majority of even expensive, expertly made wine is intended for consumption within 2 years of release (so, let's say by 5-6 years from harvest).  Then again, many people seek...

  • Jack, you people were drinking not a small quantum of US dollars down at that ... am not that surprised that a Cote Rotie lost out to Mollydooker.  The powerful flavours just grab you like some brazen beauty might grab your gluteals in a friendly, non-threatening way at some informal, social function.  I have a Cote Rotie in the cellar by a fa...

Tomasso has been my ... ... wine...thinking of an Ogier Cote Rotie has last year.I have a hard time guessing what is in a Bordeaux, unless it’s very Merlot heavy it’s tough, but I haven’t been drinking much Bordeaux the last few years.
