Les Peyrouses

"With the purpose of ensuring very high standards to maintain superb quality for our Cornas wines, for our winemaking we handle separately grapes from our youngest vines (less than 10 years old) or those that come from terroirs which are trickier in difficult years. To this quantity that varies from one vintage to another, we add wine produced organically, which we buy from a terroir situated as close as possible to Cornas. It possesses the qualities of freshness we seek and will blend coherently with the wine that comes from our youngest vines."

2018 VINTAGE

One more early vintage (harvest started in the last week of August). A very rainy springtime from mid-May to mid-June, with a very heavy mildiou pressure on the St Péray marsannes, mobilized our teams 100% for the phytosanitary protection (organic and biodynamic). A very correct crop in the end, and a high-level vintage in the horizon, despite the uncommon heatwave during the harvesting…

… COMMENTS

2017 Vintage: “It's primarily Syrah and tastes like it, with hints of violet and cracked pepper accenting mulberry and blackberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, it's fleshy and silky, finishing with a burst of spice on the finish.”
