2016 Domaine Rostaing "Ampodium" Cote-Rotie
Rostaing is a member of the supreme royalty of Rhone Syrah. His vines include the famed vines of Marius Gentaz in La Landonne. He is a staunch classicist who considers his life’s work is to defend that Cote Rotie should taste like Cote Rotie, not Hermitage. The 2016 Ampodium is bottled from 14 different lieu-dits and shows a full body with lots of savory characteristics.
