There was a recent discussion on another thread about Ogier’s Rosine syrah, the gist of which was that it was a good wine in and of itself, but that if you started thinking of it as a junior-baby-almost-Côte-Rôtie, you might be disappointed, and I very much agree.
For me, this…
…is further along the road to Rôtiedom (in keeping with its higher price).
It’s sweet and seductive, but not before going through a fascinating transformation during the first couple of glasses.
In short, it goes from George Clinton to Al Green via the Wurzels.
