This single-varietal Syrah cuvée is delicately velvety with superb aromatics. More info

Stéphane Ogier uses his parcel-selecting talents to produce the Lancement cuvée from a small one-hectare plot. This consists of granitic soil, a typical feature of the Côte Blonde. The Syrah grapes used to produce this wine are destemmed before undergoing a cold pre-fermentation maceration, punching down and pumping over during alcoholic fermentation, then a post-fermentation maceration. The wine is matured for a long time: 28 months in barrels, with 50% new wood. This wine can be kept for a long time, and is distinguished by its delicate velvety character. Its aromatic complexity combines black berries, spices, smoky and floral notes. A great wine that pairs well with dishes of character.

Côte-Rôtie Lancement Michel et Stéphane Ogier serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Canard aux pêches de vigne, Lièvre à la royale, Gigot d'agneau à la provençale.

Peak: Drink until 2030

    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.
