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, in late February 2019, was part geography lesson, part taste sensation. The different elements are waiting to be brought together as a whole, but include an abundance of complex, floral, scented, rich and pure aromas. Textures run from silky smooth from one barrel to dense in the next. There is a theme of elegance and refined quality throughout, with an enchanting harmony, superb energy and fine structure. Tannins throughout were ripe and supple (for drinking 2023-2030+).
