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.

  • Sounds really worthwhile.  What organization put this on? I do agree ... $50 from there, not so much Cote Rotie or Hermitage, so I've tended to buy from there.  I like St. Joseph, but it's definitely leaner, and I don't hold it.  Crozes is so variable and mostly pretty middling. Be interested to see who all was represented ,and what you tasted...
