Stéphane Robert and his wife Sandrine established their property in 1994. It takes its name from the stone tunnel running beneath the land. The 9-hectare vineyard spans three appellations: Saint Péray, Saint Joseph and Cornas. Stéphane has made a name for himself in the region, and makes wines that are ideal for ageing. The couple practices sustainable viticulture, working all their land manually or with a horse where the terrain permits this. The steepest plots are ploughed with the help of a winch. The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted in situ.
About the cuvée
Fine and elegant, this Saint-Péray is an ode to Roussanne. This, aged around 40 years old, fermented in stainless steel vats to preserve the freshness of its fruity notes, has been subject to malolactic fermentation and aged for between eight to ten months in new barrels and in vats, always to preserve its brilliance. On tasting, it charms us with its floral, honeyed and spicy aromas.
