About the Wine
93 points, Wine Spectator
"Ripe and lush, with a core of dense blueberry, fig paste and damson plum fruit buoyed by spicy tannins, salt, smoked meat and iodine. Though modern in profile, this has impressive poise and stature through the tightly coiled, vibrant finish. Best from 2025 through 2035. —K.B."
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.
