laying-down2016 Côte-Rôtie, Ampodium, Domaine René Rostaing

Product: V2406B
  • For laying down

Description

Destemming was virtually absent in 2016, then a long cuvaison, gently executed and with minimal pumping over; all the energy and power from the fruit itself channelling the nutrients and character of the vintage. Elevage was mainly in demi-muid, with very few barriques employed, none of them new; the result has ripe yet restrained fruit, with subtle aromatics of violets and forest floor, and beautifully silky tannins at the back of the mouth. Approachable, yet youthful at the same time; a child for our time. Drink 2020-2024.
