  • After years of producing long-lived wines from minuscule parcels on the Cote Blonde and Cote Brune, Rostaing has earned a place in the upper echelon of Northern Rhone's annointed stars. 
  • The immaculate undergound cellar houses oak casks and demi-muids, which Rene argues are the best vessels for Cote Rotie. He disapoves of monster wines and seeks a more lifted and nuanced expression of the steeps slopes of the appellation.
  • René curiousity led him to seek fruit in the neighoring area of Lezardes, and also to the far reaches of the Languedoc where the gravelly soils are well-suited to René's beloved Syrah. His son Pierre has recently taken over the estate and is committed to honoring tradition while leaving room for new ideas and innovation. The future is bright at this iconic domaine!
