    "Like usual, Ogier's 2018 Cote Rotie La Serine is a better-than-decent effort, albeit one that's made with early consumption in mind. Mixed berries lead into a medium to full-bodied palate that's smooth, supple and creamy. It's almost too polished and plush, but it finishes long, with undeniable appeal."

    "Lively, with anise, bramble, sweet tapenade and blackberry and plum compote flavors, carried by juicy acidity and framed by an alder note on the finish. Syrah and Viognier. Best from 2022 through 2028."
