Ogier Vacqueyras Boiseraie 2017

$18.95

This is one of a handful of wines we’ve overed from Stéphane Ogier, and all of them have been really outstanding.

Stéphane has become quite the force in the Rhone and one of France’s brightest young stars. His Côte-Rôties are some of the wine world’s most celebrated collectibles with the single-vineyard bottlings starting at $300/bottle and going up from there. Jeb Dunnuck made a world-wide appeal, calling it “one of the most exciting domaines in the world of wine today” & the multiple 100 point scores have helped as well.

The 2017 Vacqueyras from Ogier is a standout – says both me and The Wine Advocate who tasted it blindly (They called it was one of the very best of the tasting). The nose carries subtle flavors of thyme and Provençal herbs on a woody aromatic background- discreet notes of violet and black cherry. It’s a full-bodied expression that is particularly well balanced with spices and fresh fruits and very elegant tannins.

Expert Reviews

91 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“A pleasant surprise to emerge from this year’s blind tastings was the fine showing of Ogier’s 2017 Vacqueyras Boiseraie. A blend of 60% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, aged in a mix of tank, foudre and demi-muids, this full-bodied, supple wine combines garrigue with ripe raspberries and chocolate overtones. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.”

90 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
“The 2017 Vacqueyras Boiseraie is more elegant, with pretty black raspberries, flowers, and spice aromas and flavors. Elegant, medium-bodied, silky and polished, with juicy acidity, it’s a terrific wine to enjoy over the coming 4-6 years.”
