Ogier Michel & Stephane Ogier Cote-Rotie Village 2014
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.
