Cote Rotie Ampodium Rene Rostaing 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The most perfumed, supple and approachable is the 2011 Cote Rotie Ampodium. Offering up beautiful, almost Burgundian-like, aromas of kirsch, raspberry, bouquet garni, forest floor and sweet spice, it has no hard edges, medium-bodied richness and a seamless, straight up delicious profile that’s hard to resist. Enjoy it over the coming decade...90" WA 12/13 "A bastion of traditional wine making, Rene Rostaing (who previously worked in real-estate) has been working the vineyards of Cote Rotie for the past 40 years, yet didn’t really switch to wine full time until the 1990s. He now owns roughly 20 acres of prime terroir, spread across 14 lieux-dits and 20 separate plots (there can be multiple plots within a lieu-dit). Since 1996, he has produced three separate Cote Roties; the Classique (which is now label Ampodium), the La Landonne, and his personal favorite, the Cote Blonde. He has excelled in both 2011 and 2012.
