From a top Côte Rôtie winemaker comes this fine Rhône red. Wine Advocate calls it “a no-brainer purchase”. The family used to sell all their grapes to Chapoutier and Guigal. Now Stéphane Ogier crafts “a bevy of brilliant wines” (WA) at his cellar.
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”. The family used to grow apricots, then fortuitously changed to grapes. Such was the quality that, until 1982, they sold all their grapes to top estates Guigal and Chapoutier. After two vintages in Stellenbosch, Stéphane took over from his father in the late 1990s, added extensively to the vineyards (he owns 10 hectares in Côte Rôtie, Condrieu and Saint Joseph) and built himself a gleaming, modern cellar. Terroir is his raison d’être. Using Grenache and Syrah from Plan de Dieu and Visan vineyards, this is a fine, spicy, rich fruit red. A top choice with lamb.
"Violets, roses and mixed cherries. A very smooth, sweetly fleshy core of ripe plums and cherries"
James Suckling On the 2018 vintage
