Ogier ArtesisBACKGROUND
"Remain close to the source in order to better understand the constraints, but also harness its potential." This maxim guides Ogier's principles in producing some of the most awarded wines from the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. The estate's vineyards are spread throughout several small valleys, covered in its hallmark round pebbles and stones. By reflecting the sun's heat, this stony soil enables grapes to retain exceptional levels of ripeness to produce large-bodied and complex wines that make Ogier one of the foremost houses in the Rhône Valley. More than 155 years ago, Ogier already distinguished itself in its search for excellence by establishing its winery where gushing Artesian wells are located. They allow the creation of ideal conditions for ageing, as our Côtes du Rhône Artesis testifies today.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
The grapes are from a selection of vineyards situated on the Villafrancien terraces of St. Marcel d'Ardèche, on the hills of Avignon and Roquemaure. The terroir is a mixture of – Sand from the "Aigues" valley – and layered stones on slopes from the "Plan de Dieu". Destemming – crushing – cold pre-fermentation maceration (12°C) over the course of 4 days. The wine is aged in large oak barrels "foudres" (60-80 hectoliter) for 12 months.

TASTING NOTES
The color is deep ruby with purple highlights. The nose is very expressive , dominated by spice and garrigue with ample fruit which is revealed after the first approach. The palate is silky and full, with a permanent freshness, and silky tannins. A superb spicy red fruit finale.

pretty damn good!

"Lovely White Cotes du Rhone with or without food. Haven't tried the 2017 yet but the 201 was lovely with the grilled shrimp and riced cauliflower tongiht. Can't wait to do it again!"
