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 complex perfume of the 2016 wine: an abundance of sweet cassis, violets, dried rose petals, maple cured bacon. Full bodied on the palate, textures are satin-like: this is at-once mouth-filling and refreshing. Flavours are compact and perfumed, tannins sweet and fresh, the finish being energetic and long (for drinking 2022-2030+).
