Domaine Michel & Stephane Ogier Côte-Rôtie
2011 Heritages Cotes du Rhone Rose
France: Rhône Valley
Today’s wine is fantastic and, if you love great Rosé, we offer it to you with our boldest recommendation!
On the palate, this wine presents the lively flavor young strawberry at the edges of the tongue. As the wine settles on to the tongue, it begins to spread additional flavors inward. These include flavors of white peach, citrus, rose petal and more. This spread of new flavors is intriguing and it leads to a finish that is exceedingly long for a Rosé.
Overall, the wine is delicate, delicious and simply sublime. On the finish, flavor clings to the tongue with an almost velvety coating. We really love this wine and we will be stocking our own summertime cellars with at least a case.
Very pretty in the glass, with hues that remind us of a deep pink rose or a light hibiscus tea
Young strawberry, light raspberry, red currant, light citrus and a hint of flinty minerality.
Dynamic and evolving with lush, mouth coating flavors of young strawberry, Macon peach, flint, watermelon rind, light citrus, rose petals and light raspberry
Very long and very dynamic with flavors that don’t seem to end. In fact, flavors evolve onto the palate, long after the wine leaves your mouth.
True the heritage of the Cinsault grape, this wine would be incredible with a prawn tangine
