After years of selling to other producers, Michel Ogier very belatedly started bottling up his own wines in the 1980s. Stephane, his son, took over the reins of the Domaine at the end of the nineties and has been carving a great reputation for himself. Within 10 years of winemaking he established himself as one of the very greatest producers of Côte-Rôtie there is. He exploits tiny parcels of vineyards throughout Côte-Rôtie. His wines are typically Côte-Rôtie but with a modern polish. Nothing is too systematic here, every detail in the winemaking process is thought carefully and techniques are adapted according to necessity. The wines are aged in oak barriques from 18 to 24 months in 20-100% new oak. These are glorious wines – enchanting and alluring but with requisite density and dimension for a true Côte-Rôtie.
