2017 René Rostaing "Ampodium" Côte-Rôtie

SKU #1489423 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep, brilliant violet. A mineral-tinged bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, peony and licorice, and a peppery flourish builds as the wine opens up. Shows impressive energy on the palate, offering juicy boysenberry and cherry compote flavors complemented by suggestions of spicecake and candied licorice. Sweet and seamless in texture, finishing on a lingering floral note, with impressive energy and smooth, harmonious tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Beautifully perfumed, with loads of black raspberries, gamey meats, truffle, and exotic spice, the 2017 Côte Rôtie Ampodium is medium to full-bodied, with a layered textured, ripe tannins, and a great finish. This brilliant Côte Rôtie will benefit from short-term cellaring and cruise for a decade. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Hints of peppery spice and licorice add complexity to the blueberry and cassis-scented nose of the 2017 Côte Rôtie Ampodium. It's medium to full-bodied, with silky but firm tannins and a long, dusty finish. It should be approachable in a couple of years but drink gracefully for a decade and a half. (JC) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Open, meaty nose with a lovely herby note. Smoked sausage character. Succulent and peppery on the palate, and only just hinting at the further complexity which lies in store. 17.5/20 points. (RH) Inner quote mark (10/2019)
