Michel & Stephane Ogier Cote-Rotie 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Most Exciting Wine of The<br/>Vintage <br/>Stephane Ogier is a producer who is very much in form. Since taking over<br/>from his father in 2000 he has really begun to make a name for himself as a<br/>producer of makes wines that are consistently excellent, yet reflect the<br/>specific vintage characteristics. His 2008 offering is savoury and perfectly<br/>poised, full of dark bramble fruits, tapenade and spice. Benchmark stuff! <br/>(Matthew Tipping, BBR Fine Wine Sales Executive) <br/> <br/>A combination of ten parcels from the Côtes Blonde and Brune, blended<br/>together after a year and now finishing their harmonious marriage, this has<br/>impressive concentration and elegance, and is now one of the signature wines of<br/>the appellation. <br/>(Simon Field MW, Rhône Buyer)

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
