Aurélien Chatagnier established his own domaine in 2002, when he was in his early 20s, piecing together his vineyards parcel by parcel over the next decade.

Due to his great dedication of winemaking, some of the best producers in the area decided to pass the torch over to Aurelien as one of the best young winemakers in the region.

The vineyards are predominantly granite, steep with South-southeast exposure. This wine is made by a blend of Syrah from 4 communes: Ardoix, Charnas, Malleval, and Limony.

Once the fruit has been destemmed, it then be fermented with natural yeasts in fiberglass tanks, at 30-32º, following by 3 pump overs per day. After that, it is aged in old barrels (1-5 years) for 12-15 months.

On the nose, an impressive fusion of floral and fruits like violet, raspberry, blackberry, black currant with remarkable black pepper, liquorice aromas, accompanying subtle toasty oak notes and a hint of dark chocolate.

On the palate, It showcases ample, straightforward fruity flavours such as raspberry, black currant and blackberry following by pepper, leather, liquorice and integrated oak notes. It is structured, well-balanced yet elegant with mouth-watering acidity and fine tannins. It benefits from decanting for one hour when young, or it can be aged for 5-8 years.

I am perfect with a cold, red or white meats, poultry, game barbecue and cheese, especially a terrine of wild boar, entrecote steak wine merchant, potatoes stuffed with truffles.
