Voted one of the Top 5 Producers by Decanter Magazine in 2018, alongside some of the most well-known producers, Domaine JL Chave and M Chapoutier. A nose of granitic earth, smoke, garrigue herbs and blueberries. Intense palate of smoked, grilled, cured meats, ripe blueberry and plenty of green pepper notes- Very serious for a cheapie! Father and son team Gilbert et Aurélien Chirat manage their tiny family estate. All grapes used to be sold to the Guigal family, whom they are still very close friends with. Aurelien worked in New Zealand and has brought some New World modernity to this ancient region. All grapes are hand harvested from the incredibly steep slopes. 100% destemmed to retain the fresh fruit purity.

Granitic, smoky, garrigue and blueberry nose. Intense palate of smoked, grilled, cured meats, ripe blueberry and plenty of earth and spice notes. Very serious for a such an affordable wine- punches well above its price point. Exceptional introduction to the Rhone and Syrah/Viognier blends.
