As this domain on the hillsides of Ampuis has been in the family for seven generations, it was perfectly natural for Stéphane Ogier to take over from his father Michel. Having learned his craft in Burgundy, he has decided to produce single parcel wines to achieve the best expression of each terroir. He also strives constantly for elegance and finesse. Today, the vines are planted on 27 hectares of granite and shale soil and cultivated sustainably. Tillage, organic treatments, no yeast and a short maceration process are the watchwords. This Syrah comes from granite soils in the hills around the commune of Tupin-Semons. It is sustainably cultivated and harvested by hand. Maturation for 12 months in barrique barrels produce this intense, complex wine. The barrel élevage of some wines delivers woody, smoky notes. We also find black berries and violet – the typical aromas of this variety. This IGP Collines Rhodaniennes appellation wine is seductively supple and elegant, with a harmonious fruitiness. A lovely cuvée to be drunk while still young and fruity.
