Ogier Cote Rotie Lieu-dit ‘Bertholon’ 2012

150.00

 

Lieux Dits, which translates to ‘said location’, refers to a specific site akin to a single vineyard. Stephane has 6 Lieux Dits across both the Côte Blonde and Brune – feminine, masculine, floral, savoury, earthiness all come through. Each wine had a great personality. Most would stand on their own, one or two looked to offer more structural elements, without the balance of fruit weight.

Bertholon is made from grapes grown in the Bertholon lieu-dit, which is on the cooler, clay soils found in the northern sector of the Cote Rotie appellation. The vines are old as they were planted in 1972.

About This Wine...

 

“Another site located in the northern end of the appellation (as are most of this estate’s parcels), the 2012 Cote Rotie Bertholon comes from mostly clay soils and vines planted in 1972. This site was also purchased by Ogier in 2012. Sporting an inky ruby color, with lots of minerality in its smoked herbs, crushed rock, smoked earth and dark fruits, it’s full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and has plenty of ripe tannic structure. Reminiscent of a wine from Grandes Places (which lies just above it) with its masculine, darker style, give this beauty a few years in the cellar and enjoy over the following 15 years. Drink 2018 – 2032.”

93+/100 Robert Parker
