Stephane Ogier - Cotes du Rhone Rouge + Blanc 2018
Over the last decade or so, Stephane Ogier has raised the bar in just about every way possible for his estate in Côte Rôtie: purchasing new vineyards, replanting existing sites, working hard to develop an AOC for Seyssuel and building a completely new cellar—all the while continuing to produce a bevy of brilliant wines. Today, the estate is unquestionably in the top handful of domaines in the Rhône Valley.
JEB DUNNUCK, The Wine Advocate
All hail the mighty Stephane Ogier as he absolutely excels in every category, yet again. I am pleased to be able to offer you Stephane Ogier sub $30 – it’s an isolation miracle!
‘Le Temps est Venu’ translates to ‘The Time Has Come’, which were almost my words exactly after having tasted the Rhone Blanc and Rouge blends last week in store.
The time has come for us all to enjoy this Cult Rhone Legend at an every-day-of-the-week price! Between the sleek packaging, the quality of the fruit, and the price I’m finding it very hard to reason drinking anything other than these right now.
Many of you have been fans of Ogier for quite sometime, but if you have somehow missed him for all these years, now is your chance!
7 generations have settled in Ampuis – the flagship village of Cote Rotie. Stephane, son of Michel, took over the business and winemaking in the late 90’s and has cultivated a prestigious reputation worldwide since. In 2015 a new cellar was constructed to match the excellence of Stephane who is a motivated man and one of the finest winemakers in the Northern Rhone. He is proud of his work and rightfully so. Stephane Ogier is now regarded by many industry professionals as one of the true elite in the Rhone region.
To have an opportunity to see what he’s capable of at such an affordable price is really incredible. I am pleased to offer over 20% savings on both the Blanc and Rouge for a limited time. You can read about the wines below.
