The Ogiers own 10 hectares of well appointed vines in Côte Rôtie, split into no fewer than 35 different parcels. These are picked, vinified and aged separately – before being blended 18 months after harvest. Tasting through the different barrels that make up this “Village” cuvée, we were wowed by the intense perfume of the 2015 wine: an abundance of cherry blossom, violets and dark berries. Full bodied on the palate, textures are seductively satin-like: this is at-once refreshing and mouth-filling. Flavours are concentrated and multifaceted, tannins sweet and fresh. There is an airy quality to this wine too – the finish being energetic and full of finesse (for drinking 2025-2035+).
