Ogier Michel & Stephane Ogier Cote-Rotie Village 2014




The entry level release that comes from the younger vines of the estate, the 2014 Cote Rotie Le Village would be a great intro into the wines of Cote Rotie. Perfumed and upfront, with lots of the classic raspberry, black cherry, mint, flowers and olive characteristics common in the region, it has medium-bodied richness, juicy acidity and a forward, deliciously quaffable profile that will make it hard to resist in its youth.

Wine SpectatorOffers a pure, racy feel, with a core of cassis and cherry preserves stretching out over light white pepper, iron and bay leaf notes. Very silky and persistent, showing cut and purity. Best from 2017 through 2024. 1,100 cases made.

Wine AdvocateStephane produced a lot of the 2014 Côte Rôtie Village (2,000 cases) as he only made two cuvées, the Village and the Reserve, with a lot of grapes being declassified into the base cuvée. The adage of drink the producer and not the vintage holds true here and this entry-level wine offers incredible charm and elegance, as well as classic notes of cured meats, olives, dried spices and darker fruits. It should keep for 7-8 years, but there's no need to delay gratification. Drink Date: 2016-2024.
