2017 Stéphane Ogier Côte Blonde  (Côte-Rôtie) 100

Wow! This is what great wine is all about. The nose is intense with its blend of white flowers, spice, licorice, smoke, wet earth, and perfectly ripe, red, and black fruits. Texturally, this is incredibly sensuous with a finish that doesn't quit. There is weight and density, as well as balance, harmony, length, purity, depth, and most importantly, style and character. And that is what separates the good from the great wines. If you find a bottle or two, grab it, as less than 100 cases were produced. This should age for 3-4 decades effortlessly. 100 Points

2017 Stéphane Ogier Cuvée la Belle Hélène  (Côte-Rôtie) 98

Dark, dense, powerful, full-bodied, rich, and meaty, the wine gets you going with its earthy nose packed with grilled steak, black plums, cherries, licorice, smoke, spice, and coffee bean. Full-bodied, tannic, structured, and complex, you are going to need to be patient with this wine, give it 15 or more years in the cellar and this could score even higher. 98 Points

2017 Stéphane Ogier Cuvée Lancement  (Côte-Rôtie) 98

The non-stop intensity here is off the charts. Kicking off with smoky black cherries, plums, thyme, crushed stone, espresso bean, and wet earth, the nose is more than enough to hook you. But it is on the palate that the wine really takes off with its layers of dark, perfectly ripe fruits, riper tannins, and seamless finish. Let this age for 12-15 years and you will have a thrilling Cote Rotie to enjoy for another 2-3 decades after that. 98 Points

2017 Stéphane Ogier Montmain  (Côte-Rôtie) 95

Black, red, and hints of blue fruit with smoke, flowers, spice, and herbs paint a beautiful picture. The fruit on the palate is even better with its layers of ripe, velvety plums, blackberry, herbs, green olive and cherry nuances. Full-bodied, opulent, and polished, this is going to be just great, but be a little patient as this will take about a decade before it really starts to deliver its essence. 95 Points

You find numerous layers of dark, black, and red fruits with a peppery, smoky, crisp edge, but this is not going to be fun to drink in its youth. It will need at least 15 years of sleep before it is ready to deliver its all. 97 Points

2016 Stéphane Ogier Côte Bodin  (Côte-Rôtie) 94

Like walking into a flower shop located next to a barbecue stand, the smoke and flowers add a lot to the medium-bodied, sweet, ripe, silky, fresh, elegant, polished red fruits. The tannins feel soft and relaxed, making this relatively forward, so you can probably start drinking it within 5 years or so. Yet, even though it can be enjoyed early, it should age for at least 20 years or more. 94 Points
