About this Wine
'Ogier planted his Seyssuel vineyards in several phases, beginning in 2001. The 2016 L'Ame Soeur Syrah de Seyssuel is the best example of this cuvée yet, combining subtle vanilla notes with raspberries, blueberries and tea leaves in a complex, seamless fashion. Medium to full-bodied, it's silky, sexy and long on the finish. Drink date 2018 - 2030.' Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Joe Czerwinski, oct. 2018): 92/100
Prior to producing Cote Rotie under their own name, the Ogier family used to sell their fruit to Guigal, one of the most prestigious producers in the northern Rhone. That all changed in 1987 when they began bottling wines under their own name and they have been on an upward trajectory ever since, scoring 100 points with Robert Parker in several vintages. At the beginning, Michel Ogier stuck to the methods he had learned (no new oak, no destemming etc.), but when his dynamic son, Stephane, took over, he applied the knowledge he had learned from his travels around the world and the wines have soared in quality.
