René Rostaing "Les Lezardes Rouge Vdp" 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

René Rostaing, the nephew of the legendary Marius Gantaz-Dervieux in Côte-Rôtie, is one of the great, reference point producers of the Rhone. This 100% Syrah is a blend of vineyards from throughout the appellation. The vineyards yield an average of 35 hectoliters per hectare; average case production is 1,500 cases. The 2007 is showing beautifully now — fresh, mineral, peppery, bacon-scented, dark fruits. No spoof — just pure Syrah from one of its great terroirs

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
