STEPHANE OGIER Cote-Rotie "Bertholon" 2016

Wine Region: Rhone-Valley - France

: Syrah, Viognier

Tasting notes: "Even in this generally silkier vintage, the 2016 Côte Rôtie Bertholon is a bit sturdy and chunky in feel. Hints of cedar join cherry fruit, and the wine finishes long and velvety." - Wine Advocate

About the winery:
It was in 1997 that Stephane Ogier joined the family estate, rooted for seven generations on the hillsides of Ampuis. After studying viticulture and oenology in Beaune, Stephane left home to work with some of the best winemakers in Burgundy and abroad. By taking over from his father Michel, he chooses to do specific work on his different terroirs to reveal the uniqueness of these places full of history.
