Les Lézardes Syrah is Rostaing's gorgeous IGP red that is sourced from various parcels from the norther edge of Côte-Rôtie. There is also some fruit coming from a vineyard in Tupin that the estate replanted in 2006. The grapes are manually harvested. Maceration lasts between 7-20 days depending on vintage. Rostaing likes to use a majority of whole clusters during fermentation. The wine ages in a combination of older barrels before release.
Wine Advocate 12/2019 "...don't neglect the IGP and Languedoc offerings being made by Rostaing. Sure, by comparison to the family's top offerings from Côte Rôtie, they're mere teases, but they're tasty, fun-to-drink wines that typically sell for realistic prices."
Jeb Dunnuck 12/2019 "In addition to the Côte Rôties, don’t miss a chance to try the Languedoc and Collines Rhodaniennes releases. Both represent terrific wines as well as value."
