Rich and indulgent, this Côtes-du-Rhône comes from an exceptional terroir.  More info

Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre that make up the cuvée are from sixty-six-year-old vines that have benefited from a clay and chalk-rich soil. Harvested, then destemmed they were then placed in concrete vats. André, his wife Marina and their daughter Alexandra then move on to pump-over and rack and return during fermentation then leave the grapes to macerate for forty days. The wine is then aged for a year. The wine is characterised by a frank and clean attack. It is ethereal on the palate. On the nose, complex aromas abound that oscillate between black fruit, spicy notes and some woody notes. Flavoursome and well balanced, it pairs well with delicate dishes such as marinated meat or mature cheeses.

Information about domain Stéphane Ogier

As this domain on the hillsides of Ampuis has been in the family for seven generations, it was perfectly natural for Stéphane Ogier to take over from his father Michel. Having learned his craft in Burgundy, he has decided to produce single parcel wines to achieve the best expression of each terroir. He also strives constantly for elegance and finesse. Today, the vines are planted on 27 hectares of granite and shale soil and cultivated sustainably. Tillage, organic treatments, no yeast and a short maceration process are the watchwords.
