Domaine Stephane Ogier, Cote Rotie "Reserve"

“Ogier blended up an impromptu 2018 Côte-Rôtie Réserve from several barrels representing the lieu-dits of Leyat, Champons, Lancement, Fongeant and Montmain. It’s full-bodied and velvety, without some of the high, floral notes evinced by individual parcels, but richly hedonistic, with a rich, lush texture and enveloping flavors of purple raspberries.” 93-95 points, dWine Advocate (12/20/2019)
