Written By Treve Ring Libations / Red Wine Feb 19, 2010 Ogier & Fils Les Brunnelles 2006 Crozes-Hermitage SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestRhone Valley, France $27-33Wines like this remind me just how much I love Rhone wines. These non-pretentious, solid and ruggedly tamed wines can be intoxicating. To me, these are reliable and earthy delights – polished, but with an honest and rustic patina. This 100% Syrah is no exception – and a fantastic Crozes-Hermitage for the price. Unmistakable cracked black pepper and wild raspberry aromas, and an exciting spicy palate of vibrant dark raspberry, cherry, pepper, salted meats, violet and sweet vanilla. Concentrated, full bodied and fruit driven, with tannins grippy enough to stand up to that porterhouse tonight – no need to wait a few years. Very well done and great value for price – an attractive, impressive Northern Rhone Syrah to drink now.In 1859, Christophe Ogier establishes a wine merchants company called Ogier & Fils, which was handed down to his son Antoine in 1895, with a name change to A. Ogier & Fils. In 1948, the company morphed into that of a négociant-éleveur, buying grapes and wine from certain quality growers and crafting their own house cuvées from them.Rating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean) FranceRed WineWine Reviews SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her work with EAT, she is a Wine Critic and National Judge for ...
