Our last shipment from Ogier erroneously included the 2009 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Choregies instead of the 2010.
So we have agreed to offer the excess wine at a remarkable price - 50% off.
The prestige cuvee is typically a blend of 60% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 5% Mouvedre from 60 year old vines. Vinification is much the same as for the regular cuvee except that the wine is left longer on skins. It is aged for 14 months, 80% in demi-muids and 20% in partly new 300 litre barrels before assemblage and bottling unfiltered.
The Rhone Report: Better than the straight cuvee and a smoking good Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the limited production 2009 Les Choregies possesses a stunningly traditional bouquet of garrigue, crushed stone, licorice, and spice, a fullbodied, concentrated mid-palate, beautiful freshness and purity, and a classic, long and structured finish. Impressive and this classic red should be given 4-6 years of bottle age, and then consumed over the following decade or longer. 93 Points
