Out of stock

The opinion of the wine taster

J“A fine wine with an excellent price/quality ratio. Delicate aromas of strawberry and pepper come out from the blend of grenache and syrah. Wine is charming, fresh and fruity in the mouth. The aftertaste is sophisticated. The minimalist elegance will inebriate your senses. You can match this wine with the menu of Chef Michael Nizzero to spend good moments!  
 

Terroir

The Chastelle winery is located on the left bound of the Rhone river. Vineyards are 50 to 80 years old. The age of vineyards is usually a sign of quality: old vines produce less grapes but they are better exposed to sunlight and fruits are more concentred. The terroir is made of a great variety of soils, sometimes sandy, clayed-limestone and pebbly. 

lecepage Grape Variety

This wine is a blend of grenache (60%) and syrah (40%). Grenache is easily recognisable due to his thick, hard and bluehis skin. Grapes are big and fruits are juicy. It’s what we call a “generous” varietal. It’s known for his aromas of cassis and spicy blackberry. Its tannins get rounded once wine gets older.

lemillesime Vintage

2011 was the year of reverse weather. Spring was summery, summer was springy, and autumn,…well autumn was like always! Some wineries such as Domaine de la Chasetelle took the risk to wait longer than usual before harvesting to reach the perfect ripening. It paid off!

lerecoltant Wine maker

After having worked many years in winemaking cooperative, Julien Savanier and his wife bought the Chastelle winery in 2010. They wanted to “make the wine that we love”. Therefore, 2011 is their first harvest as owners of the vineyard. We have to say that for being their first, they have impressed us. This winery is a rising star!
