Always beautiful, and a wine you don’t hear enough about, Rostaing’s 2020 Condrieu La Bonnette has vibrant notes of ripe peach, flowers, honeyed minerality, and even a kiss of green almond. More medium-bodied on the palate, it has the fresher, pure style of this estate, yet this is no mid-weight Condrieu either, and it has classic Viognier texture and length. It’s beautifully done.--Jeb Dunnuck
Unoaked, no malo, tank sample. Attractive nose, lanolin and wet hay, chamomile. Rich mouthfeel and wet-hay notes on the palate too – quite powerful and ripe on the finish. - Alistair Cooper MW, JancisRobinson .com
Rostaing’s impressive Northern Rhone offerings include a Viognier from the smallest and finest appellation in the world for this varietal – Condrieu. Rostaing’s miniscule parcel is located at the crest of the hill. The wine produced is one of the region’s benchmark Viogniers.
