Took a look at this offer and there are some good wines to be had.
But I keep being drawn back to the '16 Rhone remainders list.
I see that the '16 Pallieres has all been snapped up.
A wine that some may not be familiar with is the “La Rosine” 2016 from Ogier.
This is a “new” area but in fact was in production up until the 1st WW.
I think the Romans may have planted there.
It is all but in name, a junior Cote Rotie.
Jeb Dunnuck scored it 89-91 and said that it should easily end up being in the “outstanding” category. I won’t do all the work for you, so look back to Marcel’s Opening Offer 2016 notes and see what he wrote? JL-L also gave it a good write up!
This wine is similar to that of Les Lezardes from Rostaing, the 2014 which I am just finishing was quite delicious.
And the best bit is that it is ready to drink, when delivered.
Ogier La Rosine 2016 £70 ib
For me a bit of a no brainer, I bought the '15 & '16 to help fill in, whilst waiting for the bigger beasts from those exalted vintages to come on stream. Well, that’s my plan, anyway!!
