Stéphane Montez's family have been growing grapes in the Northern Rhône for ten generations and today have 23 hectares of prime vineyards in Condrieu, Côte Rôtie and Saint-Joseph. After formally studying winemaking in France, Stéphane travelled to South Africa, Australia, California and England to experience winemaking outside France before returning to the family estate. He took over the business in 1997, and has driven the quality of the wines and the domaine’s reputation to ever greater heights. His winemaking style focuses on power, precision and structure achieved through temperature-controlled fermentations, careful extraction and the use of demi-muids across the range.
Mainly old vine Marsanne with the addition of some Roussanne grown on granitic soil. Aged in French oak for 10 months, a mixture of old and new barriques and demi-muids.
Powerful and waxy with aromas of garrigue and warm earth, there is underlying structure one would expect of a wine with this class. Try with River fish, trout, sole meunière, seafood. Marsanne 58% Roussanne 42%
