Description

The Chevalier family are polyculturalists who, apart from cultivating vineyards, farm the other crop famous in the region: apricots. Until 2009, they delivered all their grapes to the co-operative in Tain which, ironically, their ancestors had helped to create 100 years before. Their 17 hectares of vines extend on the superior slopes of the appellation, above the village of Chanos Curson. This, in turn is divided into 13 hectares of Syrah, 2.5 hectares of Marsanne and 1.5 hectares of Roussanne. Everything is vinified in their new cuverie, built to accommodate the 2013 harvest.

They produce 6 wines.

This 100% Syrah was raised in 600 litres French oak barrels.
It's intense ruby ​​in colour with a very intense nose of ripe fruit, violets and white pepper. Elegant, oaky and powerful yet fresh and inviting.
