About the Wine

Few Rhône Valley producers can compare to the history and pedigree of Ogier. The family name dates to 800 A.D. when “Ogier the Dane” came to fight with Charlemagne’s soldiers in the Basque Country, and on his way back home, settled in southeastern France’s Massif Central region.  Antoine Ogier, a distant descendant of Ogier the Dane, entered the wine business in 1859, purchasing a cooperage and establishing “OGIER” as a wine producer in the nearby Rhône Valley.

After more than 160 years, Ogier has grown to become one of the leading producers in the Rhône Valley. Most of its land holdings are in the Southern Rhône area producing wines from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Lirac. The estate quietly produces wine from 100% organic grapes and produces wine in a very traditional method. Ogier’s wines are an ode to finesse, elegance and freshness.

The region’s distinctive soils of large rounded pebbles and stones are evident throughout the Ogier vineyards.  Located in the center of the village in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the centuries-old winery is home to over 8,000 hectoliters of vats, barrels, demi-muids, casks, and truncated vats, a tribute to its original craftsmanship as barrel maker.

Tasting Notes: 85% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, and 5% Syrah. Nose of a beautiful complexity combining licorice, prune, raisin, mocha, cocoa, spices, and leather on a background of red fruit. A few notes of undergrowth and smoke emphasize the breeding. The mouth is structured and powerful but keeps the freshness typical of wines vinified in whole cluster. It is therefore complexity, finesse, structure, and an incredible length in the mouth that will accompany your meals.




Another terrific wine in the lineup is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reine Jeanne, which is Grenache-dominated (10% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah) aged all in foudre. It has a pretty, juicy, balanced style as well as notes of saddle leather, peppery herbs, licorice, and ripe black cherries.It’s an outstanding wine that will keep for 8-10 years. ~91 Jeb Dunnuck

Spiced roses and dried, red berries amid woody aromas and dried herbs. Classic style.The palate has a smooth and juicy core of fine tannins, carrying ripe, red-fruit flavors. Slightly chewy finish. Drink or hold. ~90 James Suckling

Brilliant violet. Fresh dark berries,garrigue, and a hint of allspice on the fragrant nose.Juicy, focused, and light on its feet, offering gently sweet blackberry and cherry flavors that deepen on the back half. Supple tannins come in late and add framework to a persistent, spice-laced finish. This wine should be approachable soon after release. ~90 Vinous Media
