    Cuvée presentation

    This cuvée owes its name to the proximity of the hillsides to the Arlettes limestone massif which allows the formation of special silicas called "chailles". Syrah vines, 40 years old, have been certified organic since 2016 but biodynamic principles have been used. Naturally, the harvest is manual. The fermentation is carried out with indigenous yeasts and the grapes macerate for several weeks in stainless steel vats with two daily rounds of pump-down and pump-over to extract all their substance and colour. Rich and powerful, Les Chaillés is beautifully tense and tangy. This wine can be enjoyed both young and up to fifteen years later.

    Information about domain Alain Voge

    In 1958, Alain Voge joined his father working the small family farm and decided abandon polyculture and devote the entire land to the growing of vines. The northern Rhône appellation Cornas owes much to this winemaker who has contributed greatly to putting this unknown appellation on the map. Today, the family has vines in several appellations: Cornas (6.5 ha), Saint-Péray (4ha), Saint-Joseph and Côtes-du-Rhône. His Syrahs are world renowned, as are his whites and sparklings from Saint-Péray. The ex-technical director of Chapoutier, Albéric Mazoyer has been working with the domain since 2004 and the wines are going from strength to strength. The domain has held biodynamic certification since 2013 and the wines drink beautifully both in youth and old age.
