Côte Rôtie Ampodium, 2010
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Rene Rostaing produced his first wine in 1971, but it took almost 3 decades before wine became a full time occupation. Through inheritance from Albert Dervieux Thaize, his father-in-law who retired in 1990, and from Marius Gentaz Dervieux, his uncle, Rene Rostaing was able to expand his Northern Rhone holdings, giving him some of the best terroir in Côte Rôtie. Rene Rostaing remains a traditional Côte Rôtie producer and there are few better on this historic slope.

The 2010 Côte Rôtie Ampodium is performing much better from bottle than it did last year. Fashioned from a dozen separate terroirs in Côte Rôtie it exhibits tell-tale notes of licorice, tapenade, black currants and black raspberries with a floral component in the background. Beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, rich and opulent, this superb Cote Rotie can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years. - Robert Parker 94/100 (2012)
