2000 Cote Rotie Lancement from Domaine M&S Ogier D'Ampuis, Rhone

Now we descend upon the famed terroirs of the Rhone Valley for a reverie in red with the spellbinding 2000 Cote Rotie Lancement from Domaine M&S Ogier D'Ampuis. A year that showered spectacular blessings for regional viticulture has brought forth a marvel, accentuating the exceptional flair of this brilliant producer.


A Vintage Par Excellence

Rhone in the new millennium began on a high note, the 2000 vintage manifests its grandeur through splendiferous balance and elegant refinement. The first sigh unmistakably reveals the Rhone's trademark meatiness, encased within an aristocratic Syrah framework, exuding an opulence that can only be summoned by an astoundingly good season.

This Cote Rotie reaches out beyond its conventional profile with rebellious sweeps of black currants, ripe plums and articulate whispers of black olive and smoked meat; fostering an investment in a sensorial extravaganza.


A Dance between Elegance and Power

Hailing from Lancement, a sun-kissed Southern slice of the La Côte Blonde, the terrain's sand and iron infused schist soil reflect majestically in this wine. An encapsulation of sheer force mellowed by seductive suppleness, it dances delicately between power and elegance.

The caress of softened tannins graces this splendid example of Cote Rotie, while a backbone of freshness balances out luscious fruit intensity. A tantalizingly smoky minerality perfumes the surfaces, nodding to true "Rôties" character.


Illuminating Decades Ahead

A remarkable consistency and depth of layers in the 2000 Cote Rotie Lancement makes it a splendid vintage to stow away, an intriguing narrative of complexity which unfolds over the years. A well-advised addition to a discerning investor's collection, promising an elegant crescendo over the long-term, but equally enthralling if enjoyed now.

2000 marked an era of brilliance for Domaine M&S Ogier D'Ampuis, and this vintage is truly emblematic of Rhone's resplendent ability to unite vigour with finesse. An exquisite expression that only continues to flourish with time - a 'tour de force' of subscription, in its richest sense.
