Ogier Châteauneuf-du-Pape Héritages 2017

The Southern Rhone's warm 2017 growing season resulted in a small number of concentrated grapes that producers like Ogier used to craft boldly-structured, age-worthy reds like their 'Heritages' Chateauneuf-du-Pape. This classic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault offers a textbook palate of berries, wild herbs, and baking spices perfect for pairing alongside Mediterranean-inspired dishes that feature roasted red peppers, sage, rosemary, and olives.

Appellation: Chateauneuf-du-Pape
Tech Notes Jeb Dunnuck
By Ogier
Heritages 2017 Chateauneuf-du-Pape

History
Patience, expertise, observation, and intuition: these are the qualities required to create and age our wines. We have been passionate about excellence for 150 years. This passion for winemaking was born in the prestigious vineyard of Chateauneufdu-Pape. Today, Ogier ages some of the biggest names of the Rhone valley in its cellars.

Blend
Grenache 80%, Syrah 10%, Mourvedre 5%, Cinsault 5%

Terroir
Southern Rhone Valley - north of Avignon - in the commune of Chateauneuf-du-Pape and four neighboring villages.

Vinification
10% of the Grenache of the cuvee is vinified with the stems; the rest is completely destemmed. No cold pre-fermentation maceration. Rack and return and pump-overs are the two techniques used for extraction depending on the vats. Vatting is for 21 to 36 days, depending on the batch. The previously filtered pressed wine is aged separately and blended in the early spring of 2015.

Maturing
12 months in oak barrels aged from 1 to 40 years (capacity of 60 to 80 hl)

Tasting Notes
Appearance: Deep ruby with purple highlights
Nose: Complex nose combining mocha, cocoa, spices, and leather on a background of red fruit. Notes of undergrowth and smoke highlighted with aging.
Palate: The palate is structured and powerful with freshness, which makes it very good for aging.
Pairing: Red meat, game, stews
Serving: 15-16 degrees C

Source: LE MILLESIME…The 2016s from the Southern Rhone (Part 1)
Lots of spice, garrigue, orange rind, and black raspberry-like fruits emerge from the 2017 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Heritages, which is a partially destemmed blend [...]. It’s medium to full-bodied and has the supple, seamless style of the vintage front and center as well as terrific balance and tannin development.
