1983 Michel Ogier Côte-Rôtie

One of the most rich and powerful wines Michel Ogier ever made; the fruit was sourced from his Côte Rozier vineyard holding, with his other fruit sold off to Guigal. At this point, it’s begun to show maturity, but the Ogier is structured for a long lifetime. Strongly marked by Rozier licorice. Complex and detailed, perfect balance. Among the two or three greatest wines to ever cross my lips.
