2012 Côte-Rôtie, Cuvée Classique Ampodium, Domaine René Rostaing

Sold Out

René Rostaing’s cellars are renowned for being among the coldest so when we visit we like to keep the pace up, before the cold penetrates tired feet. His benchmark Côte-Rôtie, from 13 assorted plots in his care, and now firmly known as Ampodium rather than its previous label ‘’Classique’’, is always a pleasure to taste. The 2012 has a fine crisp character, leading on to well-defined threads carrying the pure fruit through to a long, firm, assured finish. A classic Côte-Rôtie, which will develop beautifully into the late 2020s; and for a very respectable price. Tom Cave, Cellar Plan Manager Th
