This tiny estate, located in the village of Ampuis, consists of 15 acres (6 acres are within the Côte Rôtie appellation). Prior to 1980, Michel, the father, sold off both his fruit and the wines he produced to the large negoçiant Marcel Guigal. Michel began to bottle his wines under his own label, and Bobby’s first vintage working with Domaine Ogier was 1988. Today, more than 20 years later, Stéphane Ogier, his son, is in charge of the property. His youthful energy and passion for the vineyards and winemaking have resulted in the estate’s rise to superstar status over the past ten years.

Stéphane has been purchasing vineyards on the other side of the Rhône River in Seyssuel, near Vienne. His newest wine comes from these southwest-facing slopes, which have soils much like those of the Côte Brune. Stéphane believes the potential to be extraordinary, and you can see the excitement in his face as he talks about the vineyard. Called l’Âme Soeur (soul mate in French) this Vin de Pays is 100% Syrah fermented and aged in cask, of which about ½ is new oak. Beautiful-balance, silky texture and loads of rich black fruits, the l’Âme Soeur has a smoky, spicy palate and very long finish.

Based in Ampuis for many generations, my family has always worked in the vineyards of Côte-Rôtie.  Taking over from my father Michel in 1998, I decided to do a very precise work on our different soils to reveal the unique character of those historical places.  Côte-Blonde, But de Mont, Lancement, Côte-Rôzier, Champon, Besset…  Our estate vineyards are a rich mosaic of parcels in the heart of Côte-Rôtie. Its diversity of soils situated in the most northern part of Rhône Valley gives incredible finesse to the wines.  Every year, we do our best to reveal the typical elegance of this appellation.  The range of wines we offer is true to our roots and represents, the culmination of a long history and an exciting daily work.
