Ogier Oratorio 2012

SKU 714320145005


Eye: Deep ruby with freshness marked by its dark purple reflections. Nose: Very intense and powerful, an instant expression of this great terroir; the complexity is puzzling; at first crystallized black fruits then notes of soft spices vanilla milk chocolate, spices on a balsamic base and meaty. Palate: Remarkable scale, harmoniously marrying the aromatic power, sweetness, silky tannins and the remarkable freshness; all concluded by a magnificent length on black licorice fruits. Food Pairings: Accompanied by beef tenderloin, truffles, rossini tournedos or to be aged 15 years and then served with a provencale or wild boar stew.

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.
