The January 2012 issue of Decanter Magazine featured an extensive tasting of 2009 Chateauneuf-du-Pape. 235 different, in fact!
We were delighted to see that the top wine was Ogier, Expression de Terroir, Safres, a wine that we are the Australian distributors for.
The wine scored a remarkable 19 Points - if you regularly read Decanter you will know just how high this is! It was the only wine to score this high. It outscored some very big name wines that cost considerably more.
Decanter says: 19 Points. Rich, spicy forest fruit, jammy strawberry, earth, mineral outcrops and blackcurrant nose. Elegant style with round, soft tannins, generous weight and a long, fruity, rich finish. Quite complex, integrated and delicious. 2015-2025. 5 Stars.
Not surprisingly the wine sold out the first day we advertised it.
The good news is that we have secured a few mores cases from Ogier and we offer the wine at the same price.
You may purchase this wine Pre Arrival at $69.95 a bottle. The wine is packaged in a handsome 6-Bottle Wooden Case and will be ready for shipping in a couple of weeks. Don't delay, the quantity available is small and this is the last of this wine.

Expressions de Terroir 4-Bottle Set
The Ogier Safres is part of the "Expression de Terroir" Set which comprises four wines, all with the same blend of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mouvedre and 10% Cinsault. They are made from grapes grown on the four different soil types of Chateauneuf-du-Pape: Eclats Calcaires, Safres, Gres Rouge and Galet Roules. All wines are made the same; vinification is traditional with a long maceration, frequent pigeage and pumping over. The wines are aged for 12-14 months in large truncated oak vats.
Only the terroir varies!
We have all four wines available at the same price of $69.95 each. Why not buy all four and compare the different terroirs - a great little tasting. Click here to read about the 4-Bottle Set. Only 12 Sets available.
