Michel & Stephane Ogier Cote-Rotie 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Opens with dark, sappy syrah fruit and a fair dose of brett. Maturing nicely this offers up lots of soft tannins and bright acidity in a medium full package supporting rich olive, game, and dark wild berry fruit. Grows funky adding classic pork fat notes, and plusher with airing and the finish lengthens nicely. Also just entering it's peak drinking window though I would expect this to remain there longer than the 98 ogier. 2008-2016

History has shown that good things happen in the Northern Rhône when growers put on the winemaking hat. Like many people of the region, the Ogier family were polycultural farmers for generations. Included in their repertoire were exceptional grapes planted on the steep slopes of Côte Rôtie. For many years, they sold their production to négociant Marcel Guigal until the day that Michel Ogier decided to make and bottle his own wine. Now 30 years later, Ogier d’Ampuis has established a reputation that rivals even the grandest, most established producers in the region. Stéphane began taking over winemaking responsibilities from his father in the late 1990s after finishing oenology school in Burgundy. Following his father’s philosophy, he has relentlessly taken great care to produce the best wines possible but also is a dynamic force for change, expanding the estate and experimenting with various vinification techniques. “One of France’s most brilliant small artisanal wineries… Ogier’s wines just keep getting better and better, so if you haven’t yet jumped on the Ogier bandwagon, it’s time to do so.” –Robert Parker “Every vintage is different, so I tend to work a little different each year. All the work we do is geared towards making the difference in the end. Perhaps we can see an evolution of the domaine style and at the same time keep the Ogier style of wines developed by my father– the true expression of the terroir by finesse and delicacy.” –Stéphane Ogier Source: http://vinconnect.com/wineries/m-s-ogier/ Read less

decanted for about 1 hr- the nose had some good funk and black fruits. Palate was very primary, all black fruits still some baby fat, tannic- needs 5- years- not showing any of the typical non-fruit CR flavors at this point.

Not the best showing for this- perhaps cracking up a bit. Nose of rosemary, bacon and warm black cherries. The palate is a bit soupy and a touch weird. Hopefully just an off bottle.

Starting to shut down a bit I'd say- much less plush than earlier bottles, but with so many great components- classic cote rotie flavors; herbs, bacon, smoke and olives. very well structured- losing some of the plushness that it had previously, but a very serious wine. I'd probably wait a few years before opening again.
