Stéphane Ogier is one of the most progressive winemakers in Côte Rôtie. His impressive new winery is situated just to the south of Ampuis and features 24 new tanks of varying sizes dedicated solely to his range of Côte Rôtie parcels, allowing him to vinify each plot separately. The character of each parcel determines the level of destemming, which as a result ranges from 0-100%.
Stéphane continues to source one year-old Burgundy barrels from Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair, as well as buying new oak casks from the tonnelleries of Taransaud and Saury.
In 2018, Stéphane picked late, seeking full phenolic ripening, and has been rewarded with a fantastic range of rich, succulent wines that rival his amazing 2017s.
60% Grenache blanc, 20% Rousanne and 5% of each of Bourboulence, Marsanne, Viognier and Clairette from Visan vineyards. Wine is aged in cements vat for 6 months. Lovely masses of ripe stone and orchard fruit on the palate with good acidity lifting it up. Very refreshing wine with nice delightful finish.
