"Bright purple. Bright aromas of red and dark berry preserves, floral oils and minerals, with a strong note of Asian spices. Fresh, vibrant and pure, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors that stain the palate. At once rich and energetic, finishing with outstanding clarity and sappiness." (IWC)

Winery Notes:
• Farms organically, working steep, terraced vineyards all by hand (no tractor!)

• Dense plantings naturally reduce yields (< 30 hectoliters per hectare)

• All wines are fermented in stainless steel and open-top wooden vats

• Stems left on cluster during fermentation

• Punch-downs by foot

• All wines are vinified separately

• Wines aged in foudres and barriques for 24 months before final blending and bottling

• Finished wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered • Very low doses of sulfur, sometimes none at all

Cornas “Les Chaillots”:
• Cuvée made up of all younger vines
