Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 93-94
"Aromas of ripe, spice-tinged dark berries and pungent flowers are sharpened by sneaky mineral and spice flourishes. Spicy and focused on the palate, offering juicy blackberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors that are complicated by salty olive and cracked pepper nuances. Fleshes out with air while maintaining liveliness and finishes bright, spicy and quite long, displaying sharp clarity, even tannins and lingering florality." -Josh Raynolds

Robert Parker

RP 92-94
"Mostly blended but still in barrel, the 2018 Cote Rotie Ampodium is a terrific introduction to the Côte Rôties of Rostaing. Mulberries and licorice appear on the nose, followed by savory notes of espresso and black olives on the medium to full-bodied palate. It's silky, fine and complex, with a long, softly dusty finish. I also tasted a richer, more structured lot from la Viallière that will be blended in, along with a terrific-looking barrel from Leyat that will add floral, raspberry and mocha notes." -Joe Czerwinski

"Violets, black cherry, bitter olive fruit with loads of savoury intensity on the palate, but surprisingly tender tannic mouthfeel. Light and vivid." -Richard Hemming

Decanter

D 93
"A ripe and plush year for Ampodium, with plenty of concentrated squished forest berry fruit, and a good weight of dense, grippy tannin. Very smooth ripe style. The entry-level Côte-Rôtie for this domaine, a blend of sites from across the appellation. 95% whole cluster. Drinking Window 2023 - 2029." -Matt Walls

Wine Spectator

WS 93
"Dark currant, cherry and blackberry fruit is steeped together with anise, mesquite and bramble notes. The finish sports some tarry grip, but keeps a fresh and racy feel in the end." -James Molesworth
