After more than 160 years, Ogier has grown to become one of the leading producers in the Rhône Valley. Known for its small but exceptional bottlings, Ogier wines are an ode to finesse, elegance and freshness. In conjunction with the Alliance Francaise Wine Series, we are happy to provide its participants with this very special 3-bottle set of wines for your enjoyment. This offering consists of 1 bottle each of the 2018 Ogier Lirac Rouge Lou Camine, 2017 Ogier Vacqueyras Boiseraie and 2018 Ogier Artesis Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc.
The 2018 Ogier Lirac Rouge Lou Camine shows crisp citrus and lemon aromas and has a medium body, nicely integrated acidity, and a clean finish. It's a high-quality, beautifully textured white wine that has nice weight and concentration while being very pleasant to drink. Score: Wine Advocate 90
The 2017 Ogier Vacqueyras Boiseraie is an intense ruby color with a beautiful personality. Full-bodied and wonderfully balanced between spices and freshness of the fruits. Tannins are very present but fine. This is a wine of seduction. Score: Wine Advocate 91
The 2018 Ogier Artesis Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc has a 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.
