wine - 2011 Michel & Stéphane Ogier Viognier de Rosine

Review

M. Chapoutier, Côte-Rôtie La Mordorée 1990

Maroon in color, he’s a wine of focus and authority.  Mineral foundation, second-echo tertiaries and a billowing curtain of dark fruit.  Incandescently persistent: pepper and iron with a pork-belly smokiness at the end.  Now – 2020+.
