Region : Northern Rhone History has it that vines were planted here centuries ago. Two thousand years ago the Latin authors Martial, Pline l’Ancien, Columelle and Plutarque called the wine from Côte Rôtie “Vin Viennois”. During the Middle Ages and Renaissance, the reputation of the wines from Ampuis just grew bigger. Before the revolution wines from Côte Rôtie were sent to Royal tables around the world; England, Russia, Prussia and France. The vineyard reached its peak in 1890. Every inch of sunny hillside was planted with vines. At this time, the outbreaks of Phyloxera and other diseases didn’t demotivate the winegrowers. Unfortunately World War One will ruin all their efforts. Over 150 men were sent to war and the vineyards were abandoned. It is only in the sixties that the vineyard was attended again. Grape varieties : Syrah & Viognier Tasting notes : From the terraces of a locality called "Rosier", this Côte-Rôtie reveals a complex and powerful nose with notes of violets, black fruit, spices and liquorice. Dense and smooth on the palate, it offers silky and velvety tannins with great complexity and very good length. We recommend decanting this wine two hours before tasting. To be drunk within seven years with red meat, game, lamb or a spicy dish.France
