Cote Brun et Cote Blonde With Ogier

Visiting the Cote – Rotie and spend a whole day out in the vineyards with one of the best producers is truly an satisfying time, great to know more and to understand all the small secrets what makes the wine from this area truly amazing.

My great friend Stephane Ogier and his Swedish fiancée Stina who lives in Ampuis greeted us with the nicest stops on our wine road trip thru France, thanks you guys.

Be able to dig in to Stephane’s barrels and to taste all the samples that will be blended later on is magical and to understand the different terroirs and parcels that he owns around the area including some small parcels in Condrieu, best white wines in south of France I must say.

I am so looking forward to try the bottled wines from these barrels and I can recommend you to try and find some of his wines, you will be surprised of the elegance, fruitiness, complexity, full bodied and polished tannins even at young age.

We both agreed that there are some similarity in the Cote – Rotie wines and great Barolos.

“One of France’s most brilliant small artisanal wineries… Ogier’s wines just keep getting better and better, so if you haven’t yet jumped on the Ogier bandwagon, it’s time to do so.” –Robert Parker
