The Wine

Vineyard Profile
  • Côte Rôtie is one of the most famous appellations of the Rhone Valley. The granite soils are mostly situated on very steep terraces and can be labored only by hand. The average yield is very low with 38 hl/ha.
  • Ampuis is the “Capital” of Côte Rôtie. The next village going South is Condrieu.
  • We have 4 core vineyard partners in Côte Rôtie.
  • All our partners are on the Côte Brune as opposed to the Côte Blonde. Côte Brune is on the Northern part of the city of Ampuis where E. Guigal is located. Ampuis is the Capital of Côte Rôtie. The next village going South is Condrieu.
  • Our vineyards are located on the middle part of the very steep slopes on pure granitic soils. Vineyard workers often employee the tools of mountaineers while working the soils of these steep vineyards.
  • Jean-François insists on very low yields here.
  • These wines are 100% aged in oak barrels.
