This Syrah is a glimpse at the greatness of this legendary Northern Rhone producer. The region or IGP of Les Lezardes is called Collines Rhodaniennes, which designates the banks of the northern Rhone river surrounding the great vineyards of Hermitage, Condrieu and Cote Rotie. In harmony with this style, the wine is vibrant and fresh with fine red fruits and mineral themes. Delicious!

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

90/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski

"In a year when yields were down 15% to 20%, the 2017 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes les Lezardes Syrah is concentrated and intense, with briary notes of raspberries adding welcome complexity to the gentle cherry flavors. Medium to full-bodied, with silky tannins, it finishes taut and crisp, a lovely expression of Northern Rhône Syrah." Drink 2020 - 2025
