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 2015 (94/100)

In 2014, for the first time, we bottled a white wine : Condrieu "Les Caillets" 2014. 

The wine spectator says about vintage 2014 : (91/100) Plump and slightly honeyed in feel, with corpulent pear, apple and fig favors, backed by hints of anise and honeydew melon. Pure and elegant despite the creamy, tropical profile. Drink now.

In 2015, for the second vintage, the wine spectator writes 94/100! A fresh style, with makrut lime, verbena, chamomile and honeysuckle notes leading the way, followed by juicy peach, apricot and nectarine flavors. A light fennel thread underscores the finnish.

Côte-Rôtie La Germine 2015 (93/100)

Blackberry fruits and bloody notes – a promising nose. Sustained juice, inky depth, fresh and long. Much promise. Drinking Window 2019 - 2036
