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.

  • Rostaing Cote Rotie Classique 1999

    Snoothrank:

    This bottle of wine was part of a lot I bought from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/44411 . Cote-Rotie is an AOC created in 1940, although wine-making here goes back to at least the Romans, for red wines located on the west bank of the Rhone about 20 miles south of Lyon. The name roughly translates as 'roasted slope ' because the ... Read More

  • Because there just wasn't enough wine.  Okay, I'll bring the Cote Rotie.DV, I was a huuuuge SCTV fan, but you had to have cable.  Candy, Levy, Moranis, Ohara, Martin.  Some of them went on to be the nucleus of all the great Christopher Guest films.  But KITH was actually more brilliant, IMO.  God is Dead?  The Sarcastic Guy?
