Description

Perennial Berry Bros. & Rudd favourite, for staff and customers alike, La Rosine is sourced from vines just to the south of the appellation, including some on the plateau above. Decomposed granite, high planting densities and careful winery treatment, where pumping over is eschewed in favour of a more gentle cap management: all these factors contribute to the silky, charming ensemble presented in the glass; its ripe and generous fruit held in check by an authoritative, gently spicy finish. Drink now to 2021.

Critics reviews

Wine Advocate90/100
The 2015 Syrah la Rosine Vin de Pays is atypically concentrated and tannic, deserving of short-term cellaring. This medium to full-bodied wine delivers aromas and flavors of roasted meat, black olives, blackberries, black tea and espresso.

About this WINE

Domaine Stephane Ogier

Domaine Stephane Ogier

The Ogier family had been established growers in Ampuis for over seven generations, but it was only in the 1980s that they began vinifying their own grapes. Stéphane joined the family estate in ’97, working alongside his father Michel, before taking over in 2003.

Heralded as the face of the Northern Rhône’s new generation, Stéphane continues to go from strength to strength – acquiring new parcels and trying out new techniques. In ’ 14 he built a magnificent new winery which allows him to vinify by parcel: a fundamental principle for his long-term vision. Stéphane brings a Burgundian approach to the region’s terroir from his studies in Beaune. He works with multiple lieux-dits, both in and out of the appellation, vinifying each separately and using oak sparingly to allow the particularities of each to show. A visit to Stéphane in his cellars is always fascinating as he guides you – barrel by barrel – around his many terroirs, explaining the particularities of each. His offer varies slightly year on year: he releases many wines as single lieu-dit bottlings later in the year; others he blends, selecting from different barrels to build a style representative of both his vision and the vintage.

As always, there is great energy and concentration to his wines in the ’20 vintage. They’re a perfect balance between saturation and freshness – and fine examples of his refined and elegant style. His wines from outside of the appellations are made with equal precision and should certainly not be over-looked.

Syrah/Shiraz

Syrah/Shiraz

A noble black grape variety grown particularly in the Northern Rhône where it produces the great red wines of Hermitage, Cote Rôtie and Cornas, and in Australia where it produces wines of startling depth and intensity. Reasonably low yields are a crucial factor for quality as is picking at optimum ripeness. Its heartland, Hermitage and Côte Rôtie, consists of 270 hectares of steeply terraced vineyards producing wines that brim with pepper, spices, tar and black treacle when young. After 5-10 years they become smooth and velvety with pronounced fruit characteristics of damsons, raspberries, blackcurrants and loganberries.

It is now grown extensively in the Southern Rhône where it is blended with Grenache and Mourvèdre to produce the great red wines of Châteauneuf du Pape and Gigondas amongst others. Its spiritual home in Australia is the Barossa Valley, where there are plantings dating as far back as 1860. Australian Shiraz tends to be sweeter than its Northern Rhône counterpart and the best examples are redolent of new leather, dark chocolate, liquorice, and prunes and display a blackcurrant lusciousness.

South African producers such as Eben Sadie are now producing world- class Shiraz wines that represent astonishing value for money.
