The mineral elements and aromatic palette of a Condrieu white wine

The estate

Subsequent to the acquisition of a one-hectare vineyard in the Saint-Joseph appellation by Louis Chèze and his family, Domaine Louis Chèze was founded in 1978. Domaine Louis Chèze now looks after a 30-hectare terroir that spreads over the Condrieu, Saint-Joseph and Côte-Rôtie appellations.

The vineyard

Produced since the 1993 vintage, Pagus Luminis 2019 by Louis Chèze is a Condrieu wine that stems from a 2-hectare plot situated on the upper slopes of Limony. This 25-year-old vineyard, facing south on granite and migmatite leucosome soils, is managed in a sustainable manner.

Vinification and ageing

The hand-picked grapes are sorted on the vine and on a vibrating table in the cellar. Pressing and settling are followed by alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in barrels with stirring on the lees. Aged in first and second-fill barrels for 8 to 10 months. Bottled without filtration in a single bottling.

The blend

Viognier (100%).
