Stéphane Montez has been in charge of his family’s 24 hectare estate since 1997 and has now matured into one of France’s finest wine producers. Having started with a constant sense of experiment, particularly with the use of wood, he has now settled down and has reached a stage where his understanding of his vineyards and how best to transform the grapes that come from them into wine, is at an incomparable level. He makes wines across three appellations; Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and St. Joseph and whilst his wines have always had a delicious fruit character, today they also show a deep, underlying core of minerality allied to tremendous finesse.



Whereas many wine producers take a lifetime to make wines of note, at thirty seven years of age Stéphane Ogier is already a shining star of the Northern Rhône Valley. Stéphane showed great promise from an early age, receiving 100 points from Robert Parker for his Côte-Rôtie ‘Belle Helene’ 1999 when he was only twenty two but it is recent years that his talent has begun to mature into a confident, consistent brilliance. Stéphane makes across the three appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and St. Joseph as well as exploring and developing hitherto unfashionable and long ignored areas of vin de pays in the Northern Rhône. After recent purchases the domaine’s vineyard holdings now cover just over 12 hectares and his wines have become some of the most sought after in the world today.
