The opinion of the sommelierI am really glad to present you this wonderful batch by maison Ogier. In the glass, it displays a nice greenish yellow colour that you’ll be able to admire. Then, smell it and discover its wonderful flavours of granny smith. On the palate, it is lively and fresh and has a nice silky texture. And the green apple aromas are still there ! A perfect wine to pair with a sashimi platter.
TerroirTo elaborate Artesis, Ogier’s winemaking team goes each year around the Southern Rhône valley selecting grapes from the best terroirs. There are only just a few wineries that are able to gather grapes from so many different varieties and terroirs. That is why Artesis is one of the most complex white Côtes-du-Rhône you’ll be able to taste.
Grape varietyYou might be surprised that so many varieties can be blended in a single wine. This bold blend of almost all the white varieties of southern Rhône Valley gives a lot of complexity. Grenache gives power, clairette freshness, bourboulenc flowery aromas, viognier minerality and marsanne and roussanne provide all their aromatic complexity.
Vintage2015 was recognised in the Rhône Valley as an exceptional vintage. The sun shined almost all year long. There were just a few short rainy days to refresh the grapes. The only challenge was to plan the harvest early enough to keep the freshness grapes need to give lively wines. The team at Maison Ogier understood that perfectly and they can be proud of their 2015 vintage !
