Domaine Graeme & Julie Bott

Condrieu Lieu-Dit L'Aleau

    • Description :

      This exclusive cuvee is produced in very limited quantities on the magnificent granite terroir of Lieu-Dit L'Aleau in Vérin, which is situated between Coteau de Chery and Château Grillet, the original birth place of Viognier. This terroir makes wines of great aromatic complexity with tension and minerality all together creating beautiful length along the palate. This parcel has a very special place in our hearts, as it is with the Lieu-dit L'Aleau that the entire history of Domaine Graeme & Julie Bott began ... To bring this vineyard back to life where Viognier excels, they cleared the land themselves. Then masons reassembled the dry stone walls of the chaillets (terraces) collapsed by time, and then Graeme and Julie planted their first vines.
