Rene Rostaing Côte-Rôtie ‘La Landonne’ 2015
Rene Rostaing is one of the top names in Cote Rotie, constantly wowing the critics with his 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 gave this wine a rather impressive 99+/100, a near perfect wine!
Wine Advocate: "Am I being stingy in only awarding Rostaing's 2015 Cote Rotie la Landonne 99+ points? This is a tremendous wine, showing immense richness and power without any apparent weight. Raspberries flood the palate in waves, accented by various spices in a wine that's intensely tannic yet never hard or astringent. Breathtaking stuff. 99+/100!"
