When Rene Rostaing took on winemaking part-time in 1971, it's unlikely he knew what the world had in store for him. He married into Côte-Rôtie royalty. His wife's father was Albert Dervieux and her uncle was Marius Gentaz, owners of the now legendary, defunct (and $$$$$) estate Domaine Gentaz-Dervieux. Upon their retirement he inherited what may be the greatest collection of Côte-Rôtie vineyards in private, small producer hands right now. The La Landonne is bottled from Syrah vines planted in the 1970s. Landonne is dark and powerful, while Côte Blonde is lithe and explosive; yet both are imbued with the finesse for which Rostaing is famed.

Today, the winemaking at Domaine Rostaing is now in the hands of René's son Pierre, and it follows the same format for all the Côte-Rôties: four weeks in tank, 18 months in oak, limited new oak, natural yeasts, and as many stems as possible - 100% in this case. Picked around 6th Sept, early for the appellation. Drinking Window 2026 - 2040.
