Ogier, Oratorio, Crozes-Hermitage, Rhône, 2010



  • Grape Variety: Syrah
  • Drink: 2012 - 2016



Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Lightly tarry, meaty nose, a bit reduced? Broad, supple, quite rich and juicy, plump but has some lift and piquancy. It’s limpid and fresh, with ample zest rather than depth. Tannic finish, though.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Hedgerow aromas with hints of pebble-stone and spice; palate is pleasingly broad, with precocious red fruit personality, gentle balancing acidity and a certain feminine lift at the end. Tannins somewhat unresolved, yet potential lingers in the air.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Low-key stewed fruit air, pork scratching, not an alert nose. Palate is near ready to drink, bears red berry fruit, with a splash of salt or tang in it, with a surprise increase in darkness, intensity at end. Slow burn wine.
