Syrah `La Rosine`, IGP Collines Rhodaniennes, Domaine M & S Ogier D`Ampuis 2016
This wine, according to Stéphane, is his Cheval de Bataille (war horse) the one he produces in the greatest volume and therefore the one that needs to hit the spot time and time again. It does. This is the epitome of what he is trying to achieve made from 100% Syrah it is tremendously elegant, displaying flavours of cassis, raspberries and black pepper. It has a silkiness and texture than is reminiscent of a Burgundy Pinot Noir.
