Among the most elegant and refined expressions out of the Languedoc. Rene Roistaing is a famous producer of Northern Rhone Syrah, and he brings that cooler-climate poise and freshness to the same grapes grown in his property in the Languedoc. Succulent dark red fruits have a gentle ripeness and depth, as they follow a line of fine tannins to a finish of subtle spice and wild herbs. Seriously pleasurable, the Puech Noble is a unique drop.

Its Origins

Legal academic, property dealer and vigneron, René Rostaing crafts some of the finest Côte Rôties on the market today. He has owned 2 hectares in the Côte Blonde and La Landone since the 1970s but fortune has blessed him through his inheritance of four hectares of superbly sited vineyards from his father in law Albert Dervieux and another 1.4 hectares of particularly old vines from his uncle Marius Gentaz. He now has 7.4 hectares which in Côte Rôtie terms is a significant holding. Rostaing is firmly in the modernist camp of Côte Rôtie producers, destemming the majority of his fruit and being one of the first producers to ferment using vinomatics (horizontal automatic vinifiers). However he dislikes the overt taste of new oak and uses a maximum of 15% in the maturation process. All the wines are bottled unfiltered.

What The Critics Say

Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski

"Similar in makeup to the le Vassal, the 2017 Languedoc Puech Noble is just a bit more intense and even fresher on the finish. Notes of almond paste and green peppercorn remain in the background, while tart pie cherries provide plenty of lively fruit in this medium to full-bodied red that finishes taut and crisp but with silky tannins. It includes about 5% Carignan, used to boost the wine's acidity without resorting to other means."
