The Viognier that makes up this cuvée comes from a two-hectare parcel which is rich in old granite. Aged in new and two to three-year-old barrels for eight to ten months depending on the vintage, the wine is bottled without filtration. On tasting, it reveals a fine and crystalline golden hue which exudes complex notes of apricot and honey. Straight-forward and persistent, it lingers on honey and mineral notes.

    Information about domain Louis Cheze

    Louis Chèze started his venture in 1978 with one hectare of vines in the Saint-Joseph appellation, on a hillside on the right bank of the Rhône in the commune of Limony. Since then, the domain has grown to 30 hectares, and owns vineyards in Saint-Joseph, Condrieu and more recently, on the other side of the Rhône on the hillsides of Seyssuel, opposite the Côte-Rôtie. Like François Villard, Yves Cuilleron and Pierre Galliard, Louis Chèze now cultivates vines on the remains of the ancient Roman vineyards there. The domain has a modern winery so the vinification process is as fine-tuned as it can be. Every cuvée is the outcome of a meticulous single parcel selection that allows the terroir and grapes to express themselves fully. As the wines are produced on a granite terrain they are very fresh, stylish and full of character. This Rhône Valley domain is growing in reputation.
