Cote Rotie Reserve, Domaine Stéphane Ogier 2013

Tasting Notes

I reviewed the 2013 Côte Rôtie Village from bottle last year (90 pts), but the 2013 Côte Rôtie Reserve was tasted from barrel. The Reserve cuvée didn’t disappoint this go around and there are roughly 800 cases of this deep ruby-colored beauty. It offers medium to full-bodied richness, bright acidity, solid concentration and classic notes of smoked blackberries, black raspberries, spice box, dried earth and tapenade. It’s going to need 4-5 years of bottle age and should have two decades of overall longevity.
