Steep soils, poor in humus, sunny terraces: these are the characteristics of Cornas! And these are found in this cru of the Jaboulet family marked by the terroir and the Syrah grape variety. The aromatic palette is vast and typical of the grape variety: ripe fruit (black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, blackcurrant), pepper, herbal and roasted aromas. This wine is distinguished by its depth, its perfect balance, its fruity structure and its ripe and very present tannins. It is a wine of character, delicious to drink and ideal as an accompaniment to meals, which will benefit from maturing for a few more years in the bottle.

Since 2016, the estate has obtained the HVE classification. The certification attests that they promote biodiversity by engaging in practices that preserve the natural areas present within the plots and around the farm: respect for the ecosystem and control of water consumption. They are classified as HVE level 3 (the highest level): “zero pesticides”, “zero chemical insecticides”, tillage. Lately, they have set up insect hotels, birdhouses and bat houses for integrated pest management. .
These vigorous and robust vineyards, some of which are over 100 years old, are firmly planted in unrivaled land which, combined with a harsh climate, gives the grapes their special quality and personality.
(may contain sulphites, eggs, milk, fish)
Red and white wine usually contain sulphites, but there are sulphur-free wines available. Many wines use eggs, milk or fish at the fining stage of production. The ingredient list will not include these allergens because even though the wine has come into contact with these ingredients, they are removed from the final product.
