2019 domaine rostaing, cote rotie, cote blonde
Why We're Buying
Even in youth, Domaine René Rostaing Côte-Rôtie Côte Blonde shows remarkable promise. It's an impeccable blend of fine tannins, striking power, and remarkable finesse. Wine critic Jeb Dunnuck lauded the 2018 vintage, saying, "It has a magical texture, huge richness and depth, loads of tannins, and a huge finish. It made my pulse jump."
An assertively perfumed bouquet displays an array of ripe red and blue fruit preserve, floral and spice qualities, along with suggestions of licorice, smoky bacon fat and mineral notes. Effortlessly marries depth and energy and offers sweet cherry, crème de mûre and candied violet flavors sharpened by building mineral and spice flourishes. Shows noteworthy clarity and mineral cut on a long, penetrating finish that echoes the floral and mineral notes with real authority. 95-97 Points
