About the Wine

Critic Reviews
95 points, Wine Spectator
“Features dark currant, fig and boysenberry preserve flavors that are densely concentrated and supported by authoritative grip built on graphite and cast iron accents. Ganache, black tea, singed bay leaf and juniper notes add detail and range through the finish, where latent minerality lurks in reserve. Best from 2025 through 2040.”

“The 2015 Côte-Rôtie Réserve is rich, velvety-textured and long. Raspberries and herbal notes are joined by hints of cured meat in this medium to full-bodied wine. It should drink well for up to 15 years.”

“Dark purple. Potent smoke- and mineral-accented aromas of dark berry preserves, cherry liqueur and pungent flowers take on a hint of peppery spices. Spicy and taut on entry, then round and vibrant in the mid-palate, offering concentrated black raspberry, cola and violet pastille flavors given lift and spine by juicy acidity. Finishes bright, minerally and very long, displaying harmonious tannins and resonating floral and dark berry notes.”

About The Winery
The Ogier family has been rooted in Ampuis for seven generations. From the age of six, current owner and winemaker Stéphane knew he wanted to follow in his winemaker father’s footsteps. In 1997, after completing his oenological studies in Beaune, Stéphane formally joined the family estate. The domaine produces wines from 27 acres of vineyards in some of the most famous Côte-Rôtie areas, such as Lancement, Côte-Rozier, and La Viallière. Aside from his Côte-Rôtie wines, Stéphane also produces a Côtes du Rhône (Le Temps est Venu) and several Syrah wines (L’Ame Soeur, La Rosine). In 20 years, total production has grown from 15,000 to 300,000 bottles. Today, the wines have become a reference point for the appellation and are sought after by the greatest chefs and most serious wine lovers around the world.
