Just Taste It
Domaine Joseph Roty
To get an appointment at domain Roty isn't very easy. Like many wine makers of the Côte, this domain doesn't have any problem selling their wine and even can't meet the demanded. We didn't taste in the cellar but in a small room aside the house with view on the backyard and a vineyard situated in the middle of the village.
Elsewhere you may read that Roty's wines have too much wood and he sells them at boutique prices. Both isn't quite right. At least the wines which we tasted made up with the wood very well. And they weren't substantially more expensive compared to other famous vine dressers of the village. Of course you don't make a bargain buy but for that Burgundy is the wrong place anyway.
