La VIalliere Côte-Rôtie by Stephane Ogier 2016

La VIalliere Côte-Rôtie

by Stephane Ogier 2016

Producer : Michel et Stéphane Ogier

Region : France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

Bottle Per Case : 3 x 750ml

Food Pairing : Duck breast

Tasting Notes

"Bright purple. A highly perfumed, complex bouquet displays mineral driven dark berry, potpourri, exotic spice and incense qualities, and a smoky bacon nuance that emerges as the wine opens up. Fleshy and expansive on the palate, offering penetrating smoke accented boysenberry, candied liquorice, spicecake and candied violet flavours supported by a core of juicy acidity. Smoothly blends richness and delicacy and finishes strikingly long and youthfully tannic, leaving floral pastille and allspice notes behind."

The Producer

Michel et Stéphane Ogier

The Ogier family was making more money growing fruit in those days! By 1987, they were bottling and selling their entire harvest. From that point forward, they never looked back! In 1998, the name of the domaine was changed to Michel & Stephane Ogier, announcing the arrival and participation of Stephane Ogier, who joined his father in the family business. Before devoting himself to the estate full-time, Stephane Ogier spent time learning about wine by working in Beaune and South Africa. In 2003, they completely renovated their cellars and added new, temperature controlled, fermentation vats. Domaine Michel & Stephane Ogier Cote Rotie, like many Cote Rotie properties, is a completely family run estate. Today, Stephane Ogier is responsible for many of the domaine’s decisions to produce Ogier Cote Rotie. Today Stéphane Ogier is one of the northern Rhône Valley’s most distinguished producers who sells his best wines for up to $650 a bottle.
