Founded in 1859, Ogier is located in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in the heart of the most prestigious appellation in the south of France. In order to interpret the subtle variations of the terroirs of this AOC and of the entire Rhone Valley, Ogier has deepened its knowledge of the types of soils present in the different appellations and has adapted its work accordingly, particularly its ageing. Its century-old cellars, in the heart of the village, house more than 8,000 hL (211 338 gal) of wooden vats, tuns, demi-muids, barrels and truncated-cone vats. The Ogier range seeks to combine diversity of soils, climates and grape varieties, while maintaining balance, uprightness and accuracy in each of its wines.
Ripe strawberry and raspberry aromas mingle with licorice and spice and that infamous note of garrigue. The palate is elegant with a supple texture and well-managed, soft tannins. Flavours of blood orange, raspberry, black cherry and wet stone.
Ogier is known for its more restrained Châteauneuf-du Pape style. It benefits from a diversity of soils mixing limestone, sand terraces, and red clay. This Châteauneuf-du Pape is a blend of about 80% Grenache with Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault. The wine undergoes a long post-fermentation vatting, then ageing in a mixture, both in terms of size and age, of oak barrels for 14 months.
