One of the top domaines at Côte-Rôtie. René Rostaing married the daughter of legendary Albert Dervieux, who’s wines thanks to his winemaking style and best plots in Cote Rotie are fascinating wine lovers till now.
These are clean, clear-fruited, initially tight wines with some oak influence – the emphasis is on elegance, and patient cellaring. The 2010s were supreme. From 2015 son Pierre has been running the estate. The top Côte-Rôtie is the Côte Blonde, a wine whose beauty comes through after 20-30 years of aging. Fantastic wines! Let’s see if Pierre’s wines will beat those of his legendary grandfather Alberet Dervieux.
