On the banks of the Côteaux du Layon, a tributary of the Loire, Domaine Ogereau spans 20 hectares of vineyards, cultivated by husband and wife team, Vincent and Catherine Ogereau. The estate was originally purchased by the Ogereau family in the 1890s, yet over time their emphasis has rarely changed, with the current winemakers maintaining a focus on the importance of grape quality. The result is a sweet nectar of dried fruits, spices and wild honey; Chenin Blanc at its very best.
Everything is organic at the farm and quality control is vigorous both in the field and cellar. This luscious and rich sweetie is made from 100% botrytised Chenin Blanc grapes and makes for a wonderful partner to any rich dessert or blue cheese.
A golden-straw yellow in colour. Scents of baked peach, orange and caramelised fruit. On the palate, full-bodied, floral and concentrated with rich honeyed flavours but with an underlying vibrant acidity. The finish is long and rich. Superb with seared foie gras with poached apples, pear and Roquefort tart or apricot soufflé with crème Anglaise.
Great service. The wine I wanted isn't available in the shops so I bought from Ellis Wharton. Very impressed with the fast delivery and secure wrapping.
The wine is superb. Curious to see how it ages over time. Super-excellent service, especially when dealing with the strange "I ordered 6 bottles but only 5 showed up because the courier broke one and didn't tell anyone" problem. Thank you so much in being so responsive.
I was after a specific wine and Ellis Wharton where the only UK stockists. Very prompt delivery and packing very robust. Would have no problems using again, excellent service.
