The voluptuous velvet texture rises and falls elegantly around notes of toasted oak and black pepper spice - a consistent signature of Rhône Syrah. A monument to the producer’s skill, this expression shows how adversity often forges the most interesting narratives in wine.

A resonating finish promises a rewarding journey for the attentive investor, making the 2002 Côte Rôtie Lancement from Domaine M&S Ogier D'Ampuis one of the remarkable investment-worthy expressions, steeped in history, challenges and ultimately, triumphs.
