RATINGS

92Wine Spectator

Impressive effort for the vintage, this manages to deliver silky texture and perfumy black tea, crushed cherry and black currant fruit notes, along with a lingering iron-tinged finish.

91Vinous / IWC

High-pitched, peppery aromas of black raspberry and cherry, with notes of licorice and violet adding complexity.

PRODUCER

Michel & Stéphane Ogier

Domaine Michel et Stephane Ogier is a 31-acre domaine in Cote Rotie. Michel is a grape grower who until 1980 sold his entire crop each year to Chapoutier and Guigal. But with his son Stephane the family now produces wine under its own label. The estate makes several Cote-Roties, Condrieu and Syrah.

REGION

France, Rhône Valley, Northern Rhône, Côte-Rôtie

The Northern Rhône Valley wine region hugs the Rhône River from Vienne in the north to Valence at its southern tip. The French call the region Côtes du Rhône Septentrionales, and it is divided into eight appellations. Along with its neighbor to the south, the Southern Rhone Valley, it is famous for its big, tannic, intensely concentrated wines. Syrah is the only red grape permitted in AOC wines from this sub-region, though the Syrah can be blended with the white wine grapes Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne, depending on the regulations for each AOC. White wines are made from Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. Of the eight appellations in the north, the most admired wines tend to come from Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Hermitage, though there are certainly exceptional wines to be found in St. Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, St.-Peray, Crozes-Hermitage and Cornas. Along with Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, Rhône wines are among France’s best known and most collected wines. Red wines from these appellations are notable for their signature aromas of bacon and green olives, and for their depth. Robert M. Parker, a great champion of Rhone wines, has written that “the northern Rhône produces three of the greatest wines in the world – the white wines of Condrieu and the red wines of Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
