Well balanced Northern Rhone red
"Attractive high-toned spicy note really draws you in, partly from the oak, but also the place. Raspberries and loganberries spiked with Szechuan pepper. Voluminous but fresh in your mouth, this has marked acidity and sharply serrated tannins. Fresher and more defined than their 2018 Les Chailles, this is well balanced, with tension and energy."

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
"Les Chailles" was given for the 2003 vintage; before then, this wine had no specific name, it was simply Alain Voge's “generic” wine. Made with a blend of grapes from several named-localities, it is a starting point from which to discover the domain and the Syrah grape variety grown in Cornas. To reach a stage of plenitude, Les Chailles will require less years of ageing than our other Cornas wines.
