(2009 Vintage) One of the leading names in the Cote Rotie, Domaine Stéphane Ogier has produced a serious Syrah full of inviting plum, berry fruits and spices. The heady nose shows lilac, violet and purple flowers which bring a lightness to the underlying darkness of the black fruit. Despite only being a Vin de Pays, this has elegance of a similar class to the greatest wines of the Cote Brune. Juicy fruit with long length and balance. One of the best value wines of the Rhone Valley.
