Rene Rostaing Côte-Rôtie Côte Blonde 1990

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is offering a fairly intense array of aromatics from the git go with beef blood, pepper, smoke, creosote and a significant dose of brett. In the mouth this was at first promisingly rich with meaty, cherried fruit but the acidity is to low to offer any lift or persistence to the flavors and the wine seems clumsy and short.

The Domaine consists of 7.5 hectares spread over 20 plots in Cote-Rotie,Crozes-Hermitage,Condrieu and Languedoc but is based in Ampuis  Cote-Rotie. La Landonne and Cote Blonde are the two top of the range cuvees of Cote-Rotie from specific vineyards but the main cuvee is called 'Classique' or 'Ampodium' and that is made from a blend of grapes from 13 other plots. Rene Rostaing also owns Domaine Peuch in Languedoc
