Ogier Cote Rotie Lieu-dit ‘Montmain’ 2012

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.

About This Wine...

 

“Côte Rôtie Montmain comes from the heart of the appellation and a steep hillside terroir just to the east of Grandes Places and La Viallière. It sports a deep ruby color as well as abundant notes of black olives, bloody meat, smoked earth and dark fruits. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated, rich and spiced, it reminds me of a Grand Cru Burgundy from the Côte de Nuits. Give it a few years and enjoy over the following two decades or more. Drink 2018 – 2038.”

93+/100 Robert Parker

 

“Opaque ruby. Potent, mineral-tinged blueberry, cherry compote and licorice aromas are complicated by smoky bacon and Asian spice qualities. Seamless, round and gently sweet, offering smoke-accented red/blue fruit preserve, floral pastille flavors and a hint of salty olive paste. Finishes sappy, spicy and long, displaying chewy tannins and a late touch of cracked pepper.”
