    40 year old vines here, planted at high altitude (400m) on steep schist based hillsides.  A perfectly balanced weight and tension, with smoky notes on the nose, very frank and pure on the palate, with ripe lemony fruit, and intense mineral character (hot stone and saline) that really tugs on the salivary glands.  For drinking now to 2020.

    40yo vines worked organically on west facing schist based hillsides.  Vinified in cuve, the grapes are not destalked, and given a ten day cuvaison before a nine month élevage in five to ten year old barrels. This offers an exciting aromatic range – violet, pomegranate, spicy red fruits and a very irony, stony mineral flecked palate. For drinking now to 2022.

    This is the domaine’s top white 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 25hh, and the wine is aged in three to five year old barrels for a year. There is a great balance of dense fruit, apricot, pears, spice with a lick of acidity and a lip-smacking salinity on the finish.  For drinking now to 2024.

    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.
