“Remain close to the source in order to better understand the constraints, but also harness its potential.” This maxim guides Ogier’s principles in producing some of the most awarded wines from the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. The estate’s vineyards are spread throughout several small valleys, covered in its hallmark round pebbles and stones. By reflecting the sun’s heat, this stony soil enables grapes to retain exceptional levels of ripeness to produce large-bodied and complex wines that make Ogier one of the foremost houses in the Rhône Valley.
Nestled in the Montmirail lace, the Gigondas vineyard is a very diversified terroir composed by pebbles, clay, sand and limestones. Our Dentellis cuvée draws its power and its complexity from this exceptional terroir.
