Ogier 2015 La Rosine Wine Of The Week
Ogier’s wines just keep getting better and better, so if you haven’t yet jumped on the Ogier bandwagon, it’s time to do so. Michel Ogier, and more recently his son, Stephane, are the leading craftsmen in terms of wines from the steep hillsides north of the old Roman town of Vienne. ROBERT PARKER
Over the last decade or so, Stephane Ogier has raised the bar in just about every way possible for his estate in Côte Rôtie: purchasing new vineyards, replanting existing sites, working hard to develop an AOC for Seyssuel and building a completely new cellar—all the while continuing to produce a bevy of brilliant wines. Today, the estate is unquestionably in the top handful of domaines in the Rhône Valley. JEB DUNNUCK, The Wine Advocate
A visit to the cellars of Stephane Ogier is all it takes to convince you, if you are not already converted, that this is indeed one of the top small handful of estates in the Northern Rhone. Nothing here is out of place, everything is kept immaculately pristine both in the winery and the vineyards (where Stephane is adamant he does the majority of his work). For those of you who have not tried the wines from this modern era cult producer 2015 is the time to get on board.
La Rosine is made from 100% Syrah and sourced from vineyards located between Cote Rotie and Condrieu. As Michael McNamara said earlier today when chatting about this wine “it drinks like a baby Cote Rotie” and the critics seem to agree. This is always one of the more serious wines in this price point we get to taste every year and we are very happy to be able to offer it for 20% off in six packs.
