    Cuvée presentation

    At the heart of the Saint-Péray appellation, just above the village with the same name, Marsannes vines, 80 years old and masters of the domain and the appellation, grow on a granite hillside with limestone deposits. The secret of their old age? Alain Voge uses biodynamic farming methods. Their grumes are harvested manually before vinification with their indigenous yeasts in oak barrels (30% new wood). Then, the wine is aged on the lees for 16 months which enhances its aromas, creaminess and roundness. An absolutely incredible aromatic bouquet abounds: yellow fruit, white flowers, toasted brioche, as well as small but directly opposed notes compatible with iodine and caramel. Surprising but divine!

    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.
