Alain Voge Rhône Rive Droite


Controlled appellation


"First vintage produced in 2001. With this blend of different plots, our aim is to express as accurately as possible the character of the Marsanne grape variety."


Organic and biodynamic methods are used for the entire domain.


The vines, on average thirty years old, are planted on colluvium mixed with coarse sand comprised of granite and clay-limestone.


Back to a hot, dry and early vintage…The season was definitively scarred by the draught, from May to August. The slop of Cornas had to adapt to this this situation with a very small growing, light grapes and lower yield in juice. Very nice Syrahs, but small quantities.The deeper and clayey historical plots in the feet of Saint-Péray hillsides helped our Marsannes to carry on, and to take advantage of the welcome rain around August 15th! Like a revenge on 2021 frost, with a very beautiful harvest of white grapes at the end…

2021 Vintage: "Also all Marsanne, the 2021 Saint-Péray Harmonie is a fresher, vibrant effort offering pretty citrus and orange pith-like aromatics, medium-bodied richness, nicely integrated acidity, and a clean, classy style that's going to shine on the dinner table over the coming 2-4 years.”
