Wine Advocate described a previous vintage of this fragrant, mineral laced white as “a dead ringer for fine Condrieu”. Apart from its much kinder price. From vineyards close by and a terrific winemaker, this is an extremely fine, mineral fresh white.
Beyond the Label
Bright, fresh, with creamy peach, light oak and mineral intensity
Wine Spectator described Stéphane Ogier’s wines as “dynamic and elite”, while Wine Advocate wrote “the estate is unquestionably in the top handful of domaines in the Rhône Valley”. Stéphane took over from his father in the late 1990s, added extensively to the vineyards (he owns 10 hectares in Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Saint Joseph) and built himself a gleaming, modern cellar. Terroir is his raison d’être. Grapes for Viognier de Rosine come from elevated, granite soil vineyards bordering Côte Rôtie, just north of Condrieu. Their terroir lends the wine its wonderful minerally elegance which balances the floral peach notes. Fermentation and lees ageing in oak for two thirds of the wine brings a creamy plumpness, matched by the bright fruit.
"Super fresh and elegantly juicy feel with fresh pear, apple and white melon aromas and flavors"
James Suckling For the 2018 vintage
