Rostaing inherited prize parcels in Cote Rotie from his father-in-law, Albert Dervieux, and uncle, Marius Gentaz. He went on to become a legend of his own. His son, Pierre, took over in 2015 and pushed the domaine in a more traditional direction. The high quality has gotten even higher.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 94
"Primary black/blue fruit, violet, allspice and olive qualities on the highly perfumed nose, where a smoky mineral nuance adds energetic lift. Sweet, deep-pitched blueberry, cherry and fruitcake flavors spread out steadily in the mouth, picking up spiciness and a touch of licorice on the back half. Finishes with sharp clarity and silky tannins that provide closing shape and grip." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 93
"An opulent, rich vintage of this cuvée, the 2019 Cote Rotie Ampodium still offers up nicely detailed, intricate floral notes layered atop raspberries and mocha. Medium to full-bodied, it's velvety and lush, with plenty of length on the finish. It should drink well for more than a decade." -Robert Parker

Decanter

D 92
"A full-bodied vintage for Ampodium, more generous and juicy than normal. Gently fibrous tannins as is the style, the fruit is very ripe, deep damson and plum with liquorice. Not long, with gently raised alcohol. Four weeks in tank, 18 months in oak, limited new oak, natural yeasts, and as many stems as possible. The whole bunch give a potpourri element to the nose."

Wine Spectator

WS 93
"Gently steeped cherry and plum notes form the core in this red, while light floral, white pepper and red licorice accents fill in along the edges. A long, subtle sanguine thread stitches up the savory finish."
