This is an in bond purchase and therefore the price above does not contain duty and VAT. This will be charged when you choose to receive your purchase. The Vineking can store these wines under bond for you, arrange for transfer to your personal bond or arrange to have delivered to your home address. In the last case, we will raise a duty, VAT, storage and delivery invoice upon receiving the request.

This remains one of the top addresses in the northern Rhône, continuing to produce benchmark Côte Rôtie and Condrieu. Stéphane Ogier’s impressive new winery just to the south of Ampuis includes extra space for 24 new tanks of varying sizes dedicated solely to his range of Côte Rôtie parcels, increasing his options for vinification and blending.
Destemming varies from 0% to 100% depending on the character of each parcel and Stéphane continues to buy second-hand Burgundy barrels from Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair as well as new barrels from the tonnelleries of Taransaud and Saury.

"55% Grenache from Plan de Dieu is blended with 35% Syrah from Visan, with 5% each of Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Attractive wine with intense aromas of raspberries and spices. Excellent structure and freshness with generous texture and ripe tannins. Drink 2019-2022."
Charles Taylor MW, March 2019
