The dress is light and crystalline, very pure with discreet green reflections. Rich and complex nose expressing the plurality of grape varieties. Exotic and citrus fruits blend with apricot and white peach with floral notes and white pepper. The mouth balances the expression of the fruit, the freshness and the roundness typical of our southern Côtes-du-Rhone. The delicate touch of bitterness in the final brings an extra dimension to the tasting, the touch!
Very gentle direct pressing from 2 to 5 hours - Cold moderate setting (6-8 ° C) from 24 to 48 hours. Slow fermentation at controlled temperature, 15 to 18 ° C to preserve the aromas and ensure a beautiful complexity - no malolactic fermentation. Aged in vats on lees for 4 months with stirring if necessary, to maintain a certain reducing environment, and gain roundness.
After more than 160 years, Ogier has grown to become one of the leading producers in the Rhône Valley. Most of its land holdings are in the Southern Rhône area producing wines from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Lirac. The Estate also makes small but exceptional bottlings from parcels within the most notable appellations of the Northern Rhône - Crozes-Hermitage and Côte Rôtie. Ogier’s wines are an ode to finesse, elegance and freshness.
This white pairs well with Aperitif, accompanies perfectly seafood dishes (scallops, shrimps, prawns, fresh line fish) with herbs (sage, tarragon) or roasted chicken.
