Artésis Rouge 2015 - Maison Ogier, Côtes du Rhône

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Based in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Ogier is a major winery of the southern Rhône Valley. Through the years, they developed strong connections with the best winegrowers in the area. Therefore, they are able to get the best grapes ! You might remember we already presented the white version of Artesis. I am very glad to present you this month Artesis red which displays nice aromas of blackcurrant and garrigue. The softness on the palate is particularly flattering. 

 

Terroir

Grapes used in order to elaborate Artesis 2015 were selected on two main parcels: one is located in the Aigues Valley where the soil is made from sandstone and limestone, and the other on the rocky plateau of Plan de Dieu and its big pebbles. These soils gave different level of maturity to grapes, and blending those allowed the winemaking team to reach the perfect balance between ripeness and freshness.

lecepage Grape variety

Grenache and syrah put together is the most common blend in southern Rhône Valley. So what is the point of adding mourvèdre? This variety almost never vinified by itself brings more tannin and gives the wine more structure. But the best part is these typical aromas of white pepper that discreetly enriches Artesis with.

lemillesime Vintage

2015 is already considered an amazing vintage almost everywhere in France. But it’s not only thanks to the sun ! Indeed, over-ripeness was threatening until the end of August when the rain fortunately began to fall to refresh the vines and therefore avoid too high level of concentration. Indeed, if ripeness and concentration are good, when it goes too far, the wines are heavy on the palate and do not make drinkers feel like drinking it. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Antoine Ogier started the Ogier saga in 1859 by establishing himself as a wine merchant in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Generation after generation, his successors used the family’s credibility in order to build a great network of winegrowers everywhere in the Rhône Valley. That’s how Ogier could develop its own style of fruity and perfectly balanced fresh wines.
