Michel & Stéphane Ogier:

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 very decent CdR blanc with an obvious infusion of more stylish varieties like Roussanne and Viognier in the blend (hence a posible reason for a hint of bitterness on the back palate). Less dilute and with more character and structure than most whites of (relatively) modest provenance, the nose is dominated by ginger and spice (viognier) and the entry is again viognier dominant with hard aromatics like angostura but with muted aggresion (non hostilis). Not the white CdP a local self-appointed magister has claimed, but very good white from the Southern Rhone. Clean, well-made and good value. 87 points.

Light bright gold. Powerful aromas of lime zest pear skin white flowers and quinine. Juicy intense and deep with chewy orchard and citrus fruit flavors and bright spiciness and minerality. Tangy acidity energizes the mineral-accented persistent finish. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Vivid yellow. An exotically perfumed bouquet displays scents of poached pear honey smoky herbs and lemon zest. Rich but energetic on the palate offering spicy orchard and pit fruit flavors and a wallop of tangy smoky minerals. Leaves a subtle note of licorice behind on the long sappy and incisive finish. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
