Stewed flavors. This #wine is robust and smooth. Some slight cedar. Slightly tanic with mild acid. More texture than expected. Would have liked to taste newly released.

Stéphane Ogier has become one of Côte Rôtie’s most well-respected stars. He looks for concentration in the vineyards and freshness in the cellars. "Le Temps est Venu, ‘the time has come’ for an adventure farther south, with old-vine Grenache and limestone slopes. A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that comes from the Plan de Dieu and Visan AOCs. Red fruit aromas and pepper spice notes. Sweet raspberry and cherry flavor adding herbs to the mix. Medium length ending with earthy notes. Nice value.

Lively red fruits, balanced acid and spice. Medium body. Perfecto with Lou Mal pizza.

Stephane Augier, great craftsman of the Côte-Rotie, delivers here a wine with undeniable value for money. Balanced Grenache Syrah blend. The finish is superb for this price
