Fruity, mouth-watering and elegant, this Muscat from Kientzler is true to its word. More info

This Syrah single variety comes from fifty-year-old vines grown on coarse-grained, granite soils. Natacha Chave's ecological choices affect the quantity of yields. These are therefore moderate. Harvesting is done manually and the grapes are sorted directly in the vineyard. She ages her wines for 24 months in demi-muid barrels and pièces. Tasted between 16 and 18°C, this dark, ruby ​​wine offers an intense expression of mocha, cocoa, flowers and black fruit. Natacha Chave has created a full-bodied, dense and deliciously silky wine.

Saint-Joseph Aléofane (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 15°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Joue de boeuf aux épices, Lapereau rôti, Gigot d'agneau sauce à la menthe.

Information about domain Aléofane

Why is this domain called Aléofane? Winemaker Natacha Chave was inspired by a book by John Macmillan Brown for the name of this domain. The imaginary island Aléofane is a place where fermented drinks such as wine are rare and diabolic goods that nonetheless possess healing properties and are prescribed to the sick. If wine was the cure for all maladies, we’d want to drink Natacha Chave’s! Daughter of a winemaker, her brother Yann took over the family domain situated in the Crozes-Hermitage and Hermitage appellations in 2000. Natacha spent some time pursuing philosophy before signing up to an agricultural course at the wine university in Suze-la-Rousse. In 2004, she bought 1.5 hectares of vines in the Saint-Joseph and Tournon-sur-Rhône appellations. Over the years her domain has expanded, and she has planted some vines in Crozes-Hermitage. Like many, Natacha has a great deal of respect for nature and tries to intervene as little as possible both in the vineyard and in the winery, using some biodynamic methods
