PRODUCER:
René Rostaing has, since 1991, emerged as one of the Northern Rhône’s most respected growers. Before turning to winemaking fulltime, Rostaing split his time between real estate and his small winery. Between 1991 and 1995, he assumed the vineyards of his uncle, the legendary Marius Gentaz, and his father-in-law, Albert Dervieux. From these two traditionalist titans, he also learned to value the noble qualities of classic Côte Rôtie. VINEYARD INFORMATION Apart from Guigal, Rostaing may have the finest vineyard holdings in Côte Rôtie. He works 20+ ha, in 14 lieux-dits, including 1.6 ha in La Landonne, 1.5 ha in Fongeant, and 1.2 ha in La Viallière. A majority of the vines were planted in the 1960s and 1970s, but some of the Viallière vines exceed 100 years old! In addition, he has a choice 1.0 ha in Condrieu, and works a 10 ha site in the Côteaux du Languedoc. Harvest: by hand
