Lush up front, with tropical mango and papaya notes, but they are quickly harnessed by racy bitter almond, orange and anise notes that course through the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2012. 1,250 cases made. –JM

The Domaine Cheze is a family estate picked up in 1978 by Louis Cheze. This domain is located on the top of the hill of the Limony County, on the right bank of the Rhone, 60 km south of Lyon, right in the Northern Cotes du Rhone vineyard. Mr. Cheze started the venture with 1 ha of Saint Joseph and some grapevines in lease. Today, the entire domain is 30 ha and includes some highly esteemed appellations such as Condrieu, Saint Joseph and Vin de Pays. Mr. Cheze’s resolve, curiosity and meticulousness are applied regarding the vineyard monitoring and the winemaking process.
Each vintage is a new challenge, with the purpose of producing the embodiment of the terroirs. Many cuvees with their specificities will delight your inner epicurean

The Vineyard:
The vineyard is run according to the viticulture raisonnee (sustainable winegrowing), where the main concern is the respect of the grape vine. At the Cheze domain, each vineyard is handled according to the specificities of each parcel. If the slope allows for it, grapevine trellising is used; and if not, grapevine stakes are used on the slopes.

The Winemaking
The White Wines:
- Manual harvest by plot in 10 kg boxes
- 1st grapes selection in the vineyards
- 2nd grapes selection on a vibrating table
- Gravity-filing the wine press
- Cold settling
- Clear must vatting
- Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation inside barrels of 1 to 3 wines
- Batonnage (lees stirring) growing of the entirety of the wines of the domain for 6 to 10 months depending on the cuvees.
