With his new winery complete a few years back, Stephane Ogier continues to make an extensive range of wines from his Cote-Rotie Lieu-dits. Ogier is able to beautifully bring out the individual expression of his 15+ different vineyard sites. The Mon Village is one of the few wines he produces that is a blend of his Lieu-Dits from several different plots from Côte Blonde and Côte Brune, which include: Coteaux de Bassenon, Le Goutay, L'Arselie, Besset, Gerine, Bourrier, and Montlis. The vines he uses here range from young to their 30s and are planted on soils of granite and schist. Always hand-harvested and sorted, this wine sees 20% whole clusters with native yeast fermentation before aging for 18 months in 20% new oak. Even with young vines, this is a structured and powerful wine with fantastic complexity, and depth elegantly weaved together. Seeing that his Cote Blonde and Cote Brune wines can go for well over $200, the Mon Village is a fantastic way to get your hands on a bottle of Ogier without the price tag, but the quality is limited, so don't hesitate!
