Stéphane Ogier is one of the most exceptional northern Rhône winemakers, producing "a bevy of brilliant wines” said Wine Advocate. This luscious blend of the region's white grapes is labelled Côtes du Rhône, but tastes way richer and finer than that.
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 were apricot growers, then fortuitously changed to grapes. Such was the quality that, until 1982, they sold all the fruit to top estates Guigal and Chapoutier. Stéphane gained experience in Beaune and Stellenbosch before taking over from his father in 2003, adding extensively to the vineyards (in Côte Rôtie, Condrieu and Saint Joseph) and building himself a gleaming, modern cellar. His brilliant Côtes du Rhône white is a delicious and intriguing blend of native Rhône grapes Grenache, Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier and others, superbly balanced and long.
"Stéphane Ogier has raised the bar in just about every way possible for his estate in Côte Rôtie"
