    This is the domaine’s top cuvée from a great terroir – a south-facing terraced vineyard on a vertiginous 60˚ slope where the soil is derived from metamorphic mica schists.  Yields are just 20hh, and it’s made from whole bunches, then aged in 2-3yo barrels.  From an aromatic and taste perspective, it is most similar to a Côte-Rôtie from the north of Ampuis where schist predominates.  It has a stony, raspberry fruit, touch of pepper, perfect balance and a lip-smacking salinity on the finish.  For drinking now to 2024.
