Rene Rostaing Côte Rôtie Ampodium 2015



The wine delivers a complex, ripe and youthful bouquet of cassis, grilled meats, pepper, lovely soil tones, youthful stems, black olive, woodsmoke and a bit of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite powerful for this cuvée, with the vintage's character adding musculature and a rock solid core. The finish is long, ripely tannic and well-balanced, with impressive nascent complexity and fine length and grip on the powerful finish.

Wine AdvocateBottled in July, the 2015 Cote Rotie Ampodium is fairly full-bodied and quite rich. The black olive and raspberry notes verge on being jammy but are balanced by peppery spice and firm, savory tannins. Give it 5 years in the cellar to settle down, and drink it over the next decade and a half or more. For an entry-level wine, it's remarkable.
