Rostaing Cote Rotie Ampodium 2015
Rene Rostaing is one of the top names in Cote Rotie, and makes proper terroir driven wines. His wines are made in a classic, traditional style, but with modern twists. His wines are aged in either demi-muids or small barrels, only a tiny percentage of which is new.
Wine Advocate: :”the 2015 Cote Rotie Ampodium is fairly full-bodied and quite rich. The black olive and raspberry notes verge on being jammy but are balanced by peppery spice and firm, savory tannins. Give it 5 years in the cellar to settle down, and drink it over the next decade and a half or more. For an entry-level wine, it's remarkable.
Region: Northern Rhone, France
