Wine Region: Rhone-Valley - France Grape: Syrah, Viognier
Tasting notes: "One of my favorite Reserve components this year, the 2016 Côte Rôtie Montmain shows a touch of cedar on the nose but also bold blueberry and cherry fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, with a rich, velvety texture and a long finish." - Wine Advocate
About the winery: It was in 1997 that Stephane Ogier joined the family estate, rooted for seven generations on the hillsides of Ampuis. After studying viticulture and oenology in Beaune, Stephane left home to work with some of the best winemakers in Burgundy and abroad. By taking over from his father Michel, he chooses to do specific work on his different terroirs in order to reveal the uniqueness of these places full of history.
