The Ogier family has been rooted in Ampuis for seven generations and is one of the most respected in producers in the entire Rhone Valley. 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.
In 1998, Michel’s son, Stéphane joined the family business fresh out of enology school in Beaune. This young and talented go-getter has refined his father’s passion for quality by introducing lower yields into their viticultural plan (via de-budding), replanting vineyards, and introducing a négociant arm of the business. Stéphane has purchased and replanted new vineyards in some of the highest points of the appellation (Bertholon, Besset, Côte Blond, Montmain, and Champon).
The 2018 La Rosine Syrah is sourced from vineyards on the border of Côte-Rôtie in all aspects except price. This is an exceptional value!
