Ogier Cote Rotie Lieu-dit 'Le Vialliere' 2017
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.
