Tasting Notes

A dense expression of blackberries, blackcurrant, with hints of crushed rock in the background. Complex, intense, yet lively attack, with floral notes, black berries notes, lovely spices, and mellow tannins in the long finish.

France

Rhône Valley

Rhone Valley is a key wine region in the south-east of France, following the Rhone river from Lyon to the Mediterranean coast. This region is divided in two parts - Northern Rhone and Southern Rhone. The first one is home to Syrah for the production of red wines while the second one mostly uses the famous Grenache - Syrah - Mourvèdre blend.

Domaine Stéphane Ogier

Moderate continental climate

Domaine Stéphane Ogier

The soils in the Rhone Valley are the result of a geological collision between the Massif Central and the Alps, creating the valley. This region can be split into two sub-regions, Northern and Southern Rhône. The granitic rocks of Northern Rhône are the consequences of volcanic activity in the Massif Central three hundred million years ago. From Vienne to Valence, granite soils and very narrow steep slopes over are making ideal the cultivation of Syrah on terraced vineyards, bordered by walls that retain the earth.
