An Icon of the Rhone

An Ogier has been growing grapes in Ampuis, Cote Rotie for the past 7 generations.
It was only with Stephane’s father Michel that the Domaine started taking its
current shape when he started bottling his own wine in 1983 rather than selling
it off to the local Co-op. Stephan joined in 1997 and its under his direction
that things really expanded with vineyard purchases across Northern and
Southern Rhone appellations. They are one of the largest estates in the region
at 45 hectares of vines and he uses three modern, well-equipped cellars to make
his impressive range of wines. He has also invested in buying vineyard holdings
in Cairanne, South Rhone as well as Seyssuel just outside Vienne (site of
ancient Roman vineyards). Always considered in the winery, Steph has reduced
the amount of new oak used to age his wines and introduced a variety of barrels
such as demi muid, even Austrian oak, into the vinification process. The result
is compelling and perfectly timed with the warming impact of climate change,
giving us more focused whites and precise, expressive reds.
