Domaine Alain Voge, Saint-Peray Fleur de Crussol 2014Regular price $54.00 Save $-54.00
The Voge family has long been based in Cornas and St. Peray, regions that have been making a splash again in recent years. The hills are steppe and the work is hard. But Alain Voge is nothing if not passionate about bringing forgotten vineyard sites back to life. These wines are pure in expression and traditional in style. The grapes are tended by a family who cares deeply about the heritage of their site.
Domaine Jean-Louis Chave, L'Hermitage Blanc 2016Regular price $315.00 Save $-315.00
Variety: Marsanne and Roussanne
Let’s just state that the Chave family has passed the vineyards and winemaking traditions down generation to generation since 1481, so, yeah, nothing else needs to be said. Jean-Louis is now the 16th generation winemaker and the family has more holdings on the famed hill of Hermitage than any other producer. But for the last 15 years the family has been rebuilding old terraces on the banks of the Rhone in the nearby region of Saint-Joseph. They are working to bring back a vineyard site that dates to the early 1900’s. This site expresses the soil mixture of granite and clay, and shows the “wildness” of the terroir.
