Ogier Cote Rotie Lieu-dit ‘Le Vialliere’ 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.

After a total destemming in order to preserve the intensity of the fruit, there is a maturation of 18 months in demi-muids in order to bring out all the cru’s finesse. After some time, the nose becomes very expressive and supple with some pleasant hints of tobacco. On the nose, the wine has intense aromas of candied fruit and cloves. On the palate, a luscious texture joins with its aromatic bouquet. It rounds off with a fresh finish and has excellent ageing potential.

About This Wine...

 

From a terrific site located in the northern part of the appellation, located just under the Grandes Places lieu-dit, the 2012 Cote Rotie Vialliere comes from 30-year-old vines (Ogier purchased the parcel in 2012) and was brought up in a combination of new and used barrels. This beauty has killer nose of crème de cassis, ozone, spring flowers and caramelized meats. This gives way to a full-bodied, concentrated and powerful Cote Rotie that always stays elegant, seamless and silky on the palate. Possessing a rare mix of power and finesse, it needs short term cellaring but will have two or more decades of overall longevity.Drink 2018 – 2032.”

95/100 Robert Parker 2015

 

“Features an exotic hint, with a lush wave of steeped currant, fig and boysenberry fruit coursing through, flanked with graphite edges and backed by singed juniper, black tea, anise, violet and cast iron notes on the finish. Shows muscle and grace, delivering excellent range.”
