Rene Rostaing, Cote Rotie, Cote Blonde 2009

97 Points CellarTracker
Fresh, elegant, refined, and sensuous, the wine is packed with layers of flowers, smoke, and sweet, ripe, elevated kirsch, the wine ends with length, purity, and energy. This has entered its prime time drinking window. Drink from 2022-2040. 9/5/2022

The 2009 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde isn’t far off the 2010 but has a more sunny, opulent style that’s very much in the vibe of the vintage. Lots of ripe black raspberry fruits, graphite, peppery spice, and earthy minerality give way to a full-bodied, opulent wine with chewy tannins and a blockbuster finish. It too has another two decades or more of prime drinking. (12/2020)

Deep, vivid ruby. Explosively perfumed aromas of red and dark berry preserves, potpourri, licorice and incense, with intense minerality adding lift and an incisive quality. Black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors shows a striking marriage of depth and vivacity and are complemented by suave floral pastille and fruitcake notes. Refuses to let go on the finish, which lingers with serious fruity, floral persistence. (JR) (3/2012)
