Marks and reviews
Stéphane Ogier releases a fresh Condrieu wine with a lovely richness
For 6 generations, the Ogier family has been one of the leading producers of great wines in the Rhône Valley. After studying viticulture and oenology and gaining experience both in Burgundy and abroad, Stéphane Ogier joined the family estate in 1997 alongside his father, Michel Ogier. Produced in limited quantities and bringing out the purest expression of their terroir of origin through plot-based vinification, the wines of Domaine Stéphane Ogier are renowned for their finesse and elegance.
The Domaine Stéphane Ogier oversees a vineyard with a surface area that has gradually increased from 2.5 hectares of vines in 1997 to more than 20 hectares, spread across the emblematic appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Saint-Joseph, IGP Collines Rhodaniennes and Condrieu.
La Combe de Malleval from Domaine Stéphane Ogier is a Condrieu wine developed from two plots planted at between 300 and 350 metres of altitude in the commune of Veauvignière and near that of St Pierre de Bœuf. Facing south, the vines, on average 25 years old, rest on granite soils.
Winemaking and ageing
The grapes are meticulously sorted in the vineyard and on a table at the entrance to the winery. Direct pressing before fermentation in large oak barrels and tuns with indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 10 months on fine lees.
