In 1859 Christophe Ogier established his business in Chateauneuf du-Pape. The company built over the years before merging with the firm Bessac Caves to des Papes to become Ogier Caves du Papes. In 2000 Ogier became associated with Leone Amouroux and added Clos de l’Oratoire des Papes to the portfolio.
Today Ogier produces a range of Rhone wines including a fascinating selection of Chateauneuf-du-Papes. They make the “standard” wine named “Clos de l’Oratoire des Papes”, a prestige cuvee “Les Choregies”and most interesting of all the “Expression de Terroir” wines.
CÔTES DU RHÔNE HÉRITAGES is a product of Ogier's hundred-year-old expertise and the finest of the Rhône terroirs. A wine with a nice bouquet of white peaches and pears with notes of acacia flower. It is fresh, ample and round on the palate.
