Stéphane Ogier's 91-point La Rosine Syrah is more Côte Rôtie than vin de pays. But then, that is where both his cellar and his numerous, tiny parcel vineyards are based. From this ace winemaker, this wine is fine, complex, long and savoury. Class.
Beyond the Label
Silky elegance, fine tannins, bright fruit with an oak hint
Floral lift, with cranberry, raspberry and leafy notes
Wine Spectator described Stéphane Ogier’s wines as “dynamic and elite”, while Wine Advocate wrote “the estate is unquestionably in the top handful of domaines in the Rhône Valley”. Stéphane took over from his father, Michel, in the late 1990s. Michel used to grow such high quality grapes that, until 1980, he'd sell all of them to renowned Guigal and Chapoutier. Stéphane inherited both the 2.5 hectares of vines and his father's passion for quality. He increased the vineyards (he owns 10 hectares in Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Saint Joseph) and built himself a modern cellar. Terroir is his raison d’être. Parcels of granite grown Syrah, aged for a year in French oak, ensures a very fine, elegant wine. Cellar and serve with lamb or aubergine bake.
"Attractive floral, cranberry and tea-like aromas. Delicate in style, with a long, savory finish"
Joe Czerwinski Wine Advocate
