Ogier Oratorio 2012
|Region||France, Rhone, Gigondas|
Wine EnthusiastThis wine manages to capture the essence of the southern Rhône in its fine scents of garrigue and sun-baked cherries. Despite a certain warmth, it remains fresh, supple and detailed, offering intricate nuances of licorice, sage and thyme on the long finish.
Wine SpectatorSmall in scale but suavely done, with alluring black tea and warm spice cake notes weaving around a core of lightly steeped cherry and plum fruit. Lingering anise details give this a perfumy edge. Drink now. 2,500 cases made.
