it’s a sexy, oaky wine, loaded with cedar, vanilla and espresso notes. Medium to full-bodied, it’s velvety on the palate, picking up some meaty notes on the finish.” Joe Czerwinski, October 31st 2018.

Detailed information


After a particularly mild winter, vines reached early maturity. The hot summer in the Northern Rhone Valley kept the vines very healthy, and the mid-harvest rains favoured a ripening without stress. The result is an aromatic profile, fresh and perhaps even more structured than 2015, making it an exceptional, incredibly deep vintage.

Grape varieties



The selected plots come from the two sectors of the AOP:
– micaschist terraces from the Côte Brune (structure and complexity);
– gneiss and loess from the Côte Blonde (finesse and elegance).


Harvest started on September 22nd 2016. Grapes were hand-picked and placed in vats. Fermentation and maceration lasted 20 days. Malolactic fermentation in 275-litre oak Laurus barrels followed by 15-months of elevage.
