Rostaing is now one of the very best producers of great Côte-Rôtie. He is continually seeking to keep yields in check, to harvest at optimum ripeness and to minimize handling in the cellar. The wines are uniformly bottled without filtration. He has tremendous vineyards to draw upon, having taken over the running of those of Albert Dervieux-Thaize as well as Marius Gentaz-Dervieux. The wines are deep and extracted but always refined and with supple, finely crafted, velvety tannins. The top cuvées are very ageworthy. They will improve in bottle for a decade or more. La Landonne is dense, massive in its youth, while the Côte Blonde is lighter and typically more elegant as one might expect from vines planted in these soils. The Condrieu is marked by glorious ripe, peachy varietal fruit and should be drunk young. A red and white Languedoc, Puech Noble, are also now being made.
