Community Tasting Notes 4

    August 4, 2021 - From a magnum. Decanted several hours. Nothing spectacular but delivers. Dark fruit, smoke, mineral and black pepper. Medium bodied and as mentioned below a very cool climate feel to it. Needs several hours decanting and likely peaks in 5 years or so.

    August 27, 2020 - Rostaing's 2013 Côte Blonde offers a pretty, perfumed nose of boysenberry, violet, gamebird, and black pepper. Taut and nervy, the cool vintage is readily apparent, almost alpine Syrah in style with spicy florals and bright acidity. Very good.

    April 7, 2017 - Comparé à La Landonne plus sur la retenu plus minéral et poivré moins viandé

    D'une précision chirurgical les vins de Rostaing sont des vins sérieux , mais de plaisir immédiat d'une délicatesse qui me rapelle certains bourgognes

    April 5, 2017 - Souper avec René Rostaing (Restaurant Toqué!): Un nez discret jambon fumé, cerises, poivre.
    La bouche est profonde, concentrée mais veloutée, avec beaucoup de chair, d'une rondeur voluptueuse impressionnante, c'est cochon! Un vin dense, très jeune mais déjà si grand. Un élevage discret enrobe le tout, sans jamais masquer le fruit, juste pour l'accompagner vers les sommets qu'il atteindra dans 5 ans ou plus. 96+ pts
