Beautifully made white from the Rhone Valley from rising star Christophe Pichon from only 2 hectares of vines. Fully organic.

"Exceptional"

"Really delighted with this which if anything I'm enjoying even more than the previous vintage."

This fully organic vineyard uses entirely traditional methods, including using horses, to farm the 50-year-old vines grown on plots on the highest terraces overlooking the River Rhone. Only 2 hectares of vines with a small yield of 30 hl/ha, manual harvest, selection of grapes, vinification and aging for 10 months in well-integrated oak barrels. 

Full expression of this outstanding terroir, expressive, aromatic, white flower and exotic, citrus aromas with a complex, fresh palate filled with ripe apricot, peaches, and fresh almond with a long, elegant, slight spicy finish. Extremely well balanced, fine white wine.
