Since taking over from the Jaboulet family, winemaker Caroline now works with her teams in a single-minded quest for perfection. They began double sorting the grapes (in the vineyards and in the winery). The vineyards are now certified organic and grown biodynamically, and built a gravity operated cellar that started working in 2010.
Cote Rotie Les Pierrelles
100% Syrah from a biodynamically terraced 1.5 ha plot in the southern portion of the appellation near Maison Rouge (Côte Blonde), that is comprised of decomposed mica-schist and decomposed iron oxide, with the mother rock jutting out from the earth throughout.
The vines average 40+ years old and yields around 25hl/ha. Aged for 9 months in 20% new oak.
