Michel and Stephane produce some of the best example of Côte Rôtie. 2011 spent 15 months in oak barrel and is a blend of both Côte blonde and brune.
“The 2011 Cote Roties are all brilliant, and at the upper end, some of the best wines in the vintage. Perfumed and fragrant, the 2011 Cote Rotie Classique isn’t holding much back, with loads of spice, lavender, bacon fat and sweet blackberry fruit all soaring from the glass. Very pure and lively, with great acidity, medium to full-bodied depth and superb length through the finish, this knockout 2011 will have 10-15 years of longevity.” – 93 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
French still red wine from North Rhone Valley France, made with Syrah and Viognier.
Stephane took over his dad’s domaine, Michel Ogier, during the 1990s and has established himself as one of the best Côte Côtie’s producers. He owns 12 small parcels located in Côte blonde, brune and Côte Rosiers. Using between 20 and 100% new oak, depending on the vintage, his wines are a great expression of the Côte Rôtie’s terroir.
