Une belle introduction aux cuvées parcellaires de René Rostaing, et une délicieuse expression fruitée de la syrah. A déguster dans les cinq ans. More info

Formerly described as a "cuvée classique", Ampodium is a blend of thirteen localities not including La Landonne and Côte Brune (there are about fifty in the Côte-Rôtie appellation). Yields are low (around 35 hl/ha), and the proportion of new wood is restricted to enable the terroir to express itself. The fruitiness of the Syrah is very expressive alongside the aromas of liquorice and blackcurrant.

Côte-Rôtie Ampodium René Rostaing serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Gigot rôti, Canard aux pêches de vignes, Maroilles.

    Information about domain René Rostaing

    In addition to his own domain in Ampuis in the heart of the Côte-Rôtie, René Rostaing, took over his father-in-law Albert Derviux's property which was one of the largest in the region. These very high-quality vineyards include 7 hectares in the Côte-Rôtie (with 2 hectares in Landonne), just over one hectare in the Côte Blonde and a plot just next to La Turque de Guigal in the Côte Brune. The estate produces three single parcel cuvées which are matured for 24 months in barrels that have been used for several wines. René Rostaing also owns vineyard plots in Condrieu and the Coteaux du Languedoc. He practises sustainable viticulture and has made a name for himself as a very talented winegrower whose wines are highly sought-after all over the world.
