MICHEL & STEPHANE OGIER CÔTE-RÔTIE LA BELLE HÉLÈNE 2009 (1) RHÔNE. THE 2009 COTE ROTIE LA BELLE HELENE IS ANOTHER PERFECT WINE. MADE IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT STYLE THAN THE MORE STRUCTURED, MINERAL-LACED 2010, THE 2009 IS A FLAMBOYANT, EXUBERANT EFFORT WITH NEARLY OVER-THE-TOP RIPENESS AND FRUIT. HOWEVER, IT IS EXTREMELY SUPPLE, SEXY AND BURSTING WITH COMPLEXITY, REVEALING NOTES OF TRUFFLES, GRAPHITE, BLACK RASPBERRIES, ESPRESSO ROAST, SPICE BOX, TAPENADE AND BOUQUET GARNI. THE WINE’S RICHNESS, FULL-BODIED, MASSIVE FRUIT IMPACT AND 50-SECOND FINISH ARE AMAZING. DECEMBER 2012 100 WA MICHEL & STEPHANE OGIER CÔTE-RÔTIE LANCEMENT 2009 (1) RHÔNE. THE VIRTUALLY PERFECT 2009 COTE ROTIE LANCEMENT COTE BLONDE IS STUNNINGLY PERFUMED WITH NOTES OF BLACK RASPBERRIES, BLACKBERRIES, GRAPHITE, FOREST FLOOR, TAPENADE AND SUBTLE SMOKE. SILKY TANNINS, A PHENOMENAL SKYSCRAPER-LIKE MOUTHFEEL AND A SENSATIONAL FINISH WITH LIGHT TO MODERATE TANNIN SUGGEST IT WILL BENEFIT FROM 2-4 MORE YEARS OF BOTTLE AGE, AND SHOULD DRINK WELL FOR TWO DECADES OR MORE. DECEMBER 2011 99 WA 2 BTS. PER LOT $500 - $800
