The Wine

Vineyard Profile
  • François Dauvergne and Jean François Ranvier are two wine lovers who decided to pursue their dreams by creating their own wines. They are involved in each step of the creation, from wine growing & wine making to bottling, thanks to strong partnerships with wine growers in the Rhône Valley.
  • The Côtes du Rhône appellation is located between the cities of Vienne and Avignon, it is 44 000ha wide. It makes it the second largest appellation in France (after Bordeaux). The resulting wines express the genuine appellation style with a modernity. A majority of Viognier in the blend expresses a beautiful complexity. That is why this wine might definitely be called a ‘’Baby Condrieu’’.
Harvest Notes

Ageing is led in stainless-steel tanks in order to keep the wine freshness and the fruity aromas.

Winemaker's Notes
  • Viogner expresses fruity aromas such as apricot, along with a whiff of rose petal.
  • Grenache Blanc builds the structure and wine smoothness.
  • Serve chilled along with seafood, Asian cuisine, aperitifs…
