Vineyard in a maze of walls

  

The first walls in Côte-Rôtie were constructed during the times of the Romans.

Today, we continue to restore and keep-up these stone walls and cultivate to restore on these steep terraces.

Like this, history is perpetuated.

Wine spectator : Condrieu Les Caillets 2017 (93/100)

After 94/100 for the vintage 2015,  the Wine Spectator writes 93/100 for the 2017.

The Wine spectator, (93 points) : Alluring, with creamed apple, melon and peach flavors gliding through, gilded with light almond and warm brioche notes. The lush finish pulls everything together. James Molesworth

 

Also : 

 

The Winespectator (93/100) : Côte-Rôtie La Chana 2016 is a red fresh and pure, with a racy savory and iron frame around a core of lively cherry, damson plum and red currant fruit flavors. Mouthwatering bay leaf and white pepper notes run through the finish. Best from 2019 through 2030.—J.M.
