Stephane OGIER (Cotes du Rhone - Southern Rhone)
Stephane Ogier, one of the best winemakers in northern Rhone decided the time had come ("Le Temps est venu") to go south.
Stephane Ogier introduced new oenological techniques to the traditional methods of his father Michel.
Stephane Ogier estate is one of the flagship in northern Rhone. Always looking for exceptional terroirs, Stephane Ogier bought a few hectares of vines further south, between Chateauneuf du Pape and Gigondas.
There are magnificent terroirs composed of limestones on blue clays where grenache grape variety grows marvelously.
As for his Cote Rotie, Stephane Ogier aims for optimum quality, despite the absence of prestigious appellation. The grapes are hand harvested, carefully sorted and vinified in thermoregulated tanks from indigenous yeasts (yeasts naturally present on the berries of grapes).
From this rigorous and precise work a wine called "Le temps est venu" ("the time has come") is born. The red is 90% grenache, 10% syrah and mourvedre bringing structure and power. The white is mostly grenache (white, this time, of course), and completed by all the southern grape varieties.
This wine follows the same logic as the "Syrah d'Ogier" vinified further north : an exceptional quality-price ratio!
