STEPHANE OGIER Cote-Rotie "Leyat" 2018

Wine Region: Rhone-Valley - France

Grape: Syrah, Viognier

Tasting notes: "The rich, concentrated 2018 Cote Rotie Leyat is full-bodied but a bit coarser and more open-knit than some of the other lieux-dits. Black cherries and blackberries dominate this bold offering." - Joe Czerwinski, The 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 in order to reveal the uniqueness of these places full of history.
