Cote-Rotie, LES JOURNARIES, Levet 2018

Availability: In stock

“This cuvée is produced in the lieu-dit Les Grand-Places, above Verenay. The parcel was planted in 1935 by Baptiste Clusel, the grandfather of Gilbert Clusel. This parcel is planted exclusively with the vieilles serines vines (the traditional syrah of Ampuis); the yields are relatively low, between 30-35 hl / ha, and the vinification is traditional - little destemming and a 15-day fermentation. The aging is in 50% new oak and 50% in one year old oak. The wine spends two years in barrel. This cuvée produces approximately 10 barrels a year. The first vintage was in 1988. Since 1990, the entire parcel has been bottled separately, with a production of just 2,500 bottles.”
