This cluster of vineyards lies due north of Côte Rôtie, on the left bank of the Rhône, below the village of Seyssuel. The slopes were greatly prized as far back as Roman times, the aspect and schist soils being very similar to those of Côte Rôtie. In recent years, a number of Rhône vignerons have reignited interest in this area, Ogier’s L’Ame Soeur being a splendid example. 98% Syrah with 2% Viognier (co-planted), colour is opaque purple, nose being beautifully floral, lifted and alluring: bramble fruits, violets, thyme. Palate is seductively supple, having gorgeous depth, mineral complexity and super-fine, refreshingly mouth-coating tannins. There is precise structure and great length (for drinking 2024-2034+).
