Yannick Alléno & Michel Chapoutier

Côtes du Rhône

Côtes du Rhône


Predominantly Syrah.

Terraces of pebbles on sand or marl from the Pliocene Epoch reddened by iron oxide. Grapes harvested by hand at optimal maturity.

Ageing in concrete tanks for twelve months.

Michel describes his wine to Yannick

Powerful on the nose: red fruit, sweet spices, garrigue scents. On the palate, aromatic power and the tannic finesse precede an explosive finish. I love this wine’s exceptional length and liquorice notes.
