Tasting Notes

"The 2015 Côte Rôtie Le Viallière isn’t part of the single vineyard boxed set and will be released on its own. After tasting it, I certainly understand why as it’s an incredible wine. Possessing awesome purity in its blackberry, blackcurrants, charcoal, meat, and dried flower aromatics, it’s full-bodied, concentrated, and sexy, yet also perfectly balanced, seamless and elegant. It’s a complete, classic Côte Rôtie that will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring and keep for two decades."

"I didn't taste the 2015 Cote Rotie La Vialliere last year, so here's how the wine is looking in 2018: full-bodied, rich and tannic. This puppy needs some serious house-training before it's ready to open; maybe try a bottle in 2025? It's inky in color, chewy in texture and loaded with dark fruit, ending on a long licorice note. The last time I was inside Stéphane Ogier's new winery, it was more or less just a shell. Now, it's been completed, and what a showpiece it is, with enormous glass windows looking out onto the hillside vineyards. It was a comprehensive tasting of the 2016s and 2017s, but at Ogier's insistence, I retasted several of the 2015s I reviewed last year. Since I scored the Côte Rôtie Reserve, la Côte Blonde, la Belle Hélène and Lancement within a point of what they received last time, I haven't bothered to write them up. All are terrific wines I was happy to try again. Starting a few years ago, Ogier has offered mixed six packs consisting of the Côte Rôtie Reserve and five of its components (the la Viallière is also sold on its own), so I've written up a number of these components separately.

"Bright purple. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes dark fruit preserves, spicecake and incense. A sexy floral element builds with air. Impressively energetic on the palate, offering intense blueberry, cherry pie and floral pastille flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. The floral note comes back strong on the impressively long, youthfully tannic finish, which leaves a lively mineral accent behind. (JR)"

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.
