STEPHANE OGIER Cote Rotie Mon Village 2017
In order to further emphasize the steep layer Côte Rôtie of the old vines, this will now be called "Reserve" de Ogier. It also contains the Côte Rôtie of the younger vines from the individual layers and the reserve and all vines from the plateau and the lower slope. The remaining reserve from the steep slopes could also be divided into their individual locations and names, the quality of which would be easily feasible and almost a must in terms of quality compared to the neighbors. However, that would cause the price to explode too quickly towards Lancement and Belle Hélène. With the division into village and reserve, the first step towards even higher quality has been taken. Of course the same organic handicraft as before, the Village receives the same attention as the Crus. The 18 months in the village, which is one third new barrique, is a wonderfully fresh, fruity and complex wine from yields of only 30 hl / ha. Rich concentrated red and black fruit, smoke, roasted aromas, black currant, mulberry, liquorice, mint, juniper, black earth, garrigues. Playful and fruity, spicy mouth with high intensity. An early and openly presenting fun maker. No côte-rôtie to worship, but to jump in. Delicious. There are not many Côte Rôties in this class.
