One year in oak. No malo. Aged on cork. Light gold with a touch of green. The nose is glorious nose, with a  light touch of toffee alongside loads of tropical and exotic elements and that brilliantly integrated oak and fleshy apple. There is a really inviting vertical pine nut element to it too. The palate is brilliant; fresh, textured with lovely sweet oak brilliantly bringing forward the juicy, playful tropical elements without losing that serious profile that is the foundation of this wine. The finish is just superb – so generous but perfectly linking some bitter elements to create an immediate drive back to your glass!

House Profile

The Vincey family have been winemakers for 8 generations but it wasn't until Quentin joined in 2009 that production took the form that it is today. They work with 7 hectares in Oger, Mesnil and Chouilly and, since Quentin's joining have removed any pesticides or herbicides. They have been working with the biodynamic principles for over three years. An exquisite winemaker who creates a wonderful fullness of fruit and layered complexity in their wines. Truly one to investigate as their wines will soon become the stuff of legend...

Press Reviews

"Creamy hazelnut aromas with notes of lemon and the scent of apple pop. Lovely chalky clarity, drive and chalky depth, an oak-kissed roundness with a markedly fine, creamy mouse. Without malolactic fermentation, this is a great blend of sumptuousness and verticality, and deserves more bottle age to reveal more of its depth – 93." Champagne's Small Stars, Anne Krebiehl – Decanter May 2023

"This up-and-coming producer is making some broad, flavoursome wines. In 2018 Oger shows some heat in its punchy grapefruit bitters and sweet pear fruit, lifted with some almond and jasmine notes from the oak. There's a subtle bitterness and spice in the tail, too – 91." Barrel Revival: Hewson's pick of 20 top Champagnes using Oak – Decanter August 2023
