2 hectares of sandy, granite terraces in the registered plot of ¨Maison Rouge¨. The vines are located in the south of the Côte Rôtie appellation. As with our vineyards in Saint-Joseph, these steep-sloped vineyards are only maintained by manual methods.

Dark fruits, oriental spices, smoke, cigar-boxes, chocolate, black pepper… This Côte-Rôtie was an idea that I saw as a new potential for our estate, as the third generation of the family in the estate and a new chapter in this winery’s history. From mature Syrah vines in the Maison Rouge locality, it has an incomparable class! Structured, perfectly balanced, it is as sensuous and full-bodied, as it is spicy and enchanting. The tannins are assertive, but the mastery of its vinification creates an exceptionally silky, velvety palate. Intensity, elegance, harmony, sensuality.
