Domaine Stephane Ogier, Cote Rotie "Le Lancement"

This beauty just explodes out of the glass with complex, exotic notes of acacia flowers, menthol, sappy herbs, bacon fat, and loads of raspberry and black raspberry-like fruit. Full-bodied and seamless, with this cuvée’s always present elegance, 2-4 years of bottle age will be warranted, and it will cruise for 15-20 years.  Jeb Dunnuck (12/12/2019)
