Cheap & Cheerful Rhône

Ogier Côtes-du-Rhône Heritages 2009
Rhone, France
The Negociant Ogier 20 years ago said 'Leave Me Alone'. They were big and made not very special wines. Times change...they are still big...but wines like this convince me to try more from their range. 'Take Me I'm Yours' says this nose. Creamy dark berry fruit leaps from the glass. The tannins are easy on you as well...some vanilla on the palate...touch of pepper. This would make a great 'House Red' if that is what you want in a Bistro, Bar or Restaurant. It was on sale in England at about £9 but quite by chance I saw it at £ bought two bottles. A real bargain.
