Domaine Michel Ogier Cote Rotie Syrah 1999

$145

The finest Cote Roties Ogier has made (and he agrees) are the 1999s. The fabulous, opaque purple-colored 1999 Cote Rotie, which spent two years in wood (30% new), reveals a glorious bouquet of bacon fat, creme de cassis, licorice, violets, and spice box. It is full-bodied, with sweet tannin, great presence in the mouth, and a knock-out finish... Michel Ogier and his son, Stephane, are producing spectacular wines. The only problem is that production is small. As I indicated last year, Ogier's 1999s are magical. Robert Parker

The brutish side of Côte-Rôtie. Gamey Syrah goodness with a fortuitous stroke of the camphor - medicinal side of brett. Might convert an Islay drinker to wine...? Whatever that means. Loved this wine.
