History has shown that good things happen in the Northern Rhône when growers put on the winemaking hat. Like many people of the region, the Ogier family were polycultural farmers for generations. Included in their repertoire were exceptional grapes planted on the steep slopes of Côte Rôtie. For many years, they sold their production to négociant Marcel Guigal until the day that Michel Ogier decided to make and bottle his own wine. Now 30 years later, Ogier d’Ampuis has established a reputation that rivals even the grandest, most established producers in the region. Stéphane began taking over winemaking responsibilities from his father in the late 1990s after finishing oenology school in Burgundy. Following his father’s philosophy, he has relentlessly taken great care to produce the best wines possible but also is a dynamic force for change, expanding the estate and experimenting with various vinification techniques. “One of France’s most brilliant small artisanal wineries… Ogier’s wines just keep getting better and better, so if you haven’t yet jumped on the Ogier bandwagon, it’s time to do so.” –Robert Parker “Every vintage is different, so I tend to work a little different each year. All the work we do is geared towards making the difference in the end. Perhaps we can see an evolution of the domaine style and at the same time keep the Ogier style of wines developed by my father– the true expression of the terroir by finesse and delicacy.” –Stéphane Ogier Source: http://vinconnect.com/wineries/m-s-ogier/ Read less

This is a really nice French white blend of grenache, chardonnay and marsanne. Light, crisp, almost like a Napa sauvignon blanc with nice white grapefruit pith, lemon lime sherbet, good acidity and a medium finish. Great QPR.

A family owned Estate comprising of 22 hectares in Chateauneuf du Pape and 11 hectares in the Cotes du Rhone in France. Andre Brunel makes this wine from his Estate grown grapes. Brunels hallmark is fruit emphasis with balanced tannins and the fruit flavours lingering through to a long finish. Grapes : 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% Mouvedre Region : France / Rhone / Cotes du Rhone AOC Maker : Andre Brunel Notes : Spicy, with very juicy ripe fruit showing great structure, ripe tannins and perfect balance.
