About This Wine...
Cote-Rotie Lancement from Stephane Ogier is produced on a vineyard of 1 hectare. The vines, on average 40 years old, are planted on a layer of granite. Cote-Rotie Lancement 2012 from Domaine Stephane Ogier is aged for 20 months in French oak barrels.
“Giving up a sensational perfume of lavender, olive tapenade, violets and black raspberry fruit, it flows onto the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, silky texture, ultra-fine tannin and a great finish. I’d happily drink this rock star Côte Rôtie anytime over the coming 15-20 years. Drink 2015 – 2032.”
95/100 Robert Parker
