Rostaing Rene Cote-Rotie Cote Blonde 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Wine Spectator: Very perfumy at first, with violet and singed bay leaf notes leading the way for very silky plum and cherry confiture flavors. The long, dark finish lets an iron hint flitter through as this expands steadily, revealing lots of charcoal-tinged grip that blossoms and blossoms, turning this into an intense, dark, brooding wine. Best from 2015 through 2027. 600 cases made. (7/31/12)

Rene Rostaing:
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
