Sommelier's Notes

Family property taken over in 1978 by Mr. Louis Chèze. The Domaine Louis Chèze is located on the top of the hillside of the commune of Limony, on the right bank of the Rhône, 60 Kms south of Lyon, in the heart of the Côtes du Rhône Septentrionales vineyard. Mr. Chèze started the adventure with 1 Ha of St-Joseph and a few vines to rent. Today the estate represents 39 Ha on the prestigious appellations such as Condrieu, St-Joseph, Côte-Rôtie and Vins de Pays.


Since 2000, he is one of the forerunners with two winegrower friends to revive the fabulous Roman terroir of Seyssuel. Louis' determination, curiosity and rigour are of the utmost importance when it comes to monitoring the vineyard and making the wines. Each vintage is a questioning in order to obtain the quintessence of the terroirs. Numerous vintages with their particularities will delight the epicurean in you. 


Cuvée elaborated since the 2007 vintage, it is a 2 hectare plot located in the Seyssuel hillsides, benefiting from a south-facing orientation. 


Vineyard: Reasoned vineyard management, spurting, green harvesting and manual harvesting.

Selective sorting of the grapes on the vine, picking in 10 kg crates. The winery: Sorting of the berries on a vibrating table, pressing, settling, then alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in barrels with stirring on the lees. 


Ageing: Barrels of 3 to 4 wines for 8 to 10 months depending on the vintage. Bottled without filtration in a single bottling. 


Vintages: Always wait a few months after bottling and drink within 2 to 4 years on the fruit. For amateurs, let it age to appreciate the tertiary aromas of Viognier.
