The Marsanne vines are about 30 years old and are located in the upper part of the Saint-Péray appellation.
The grapes are manually harvested and pressed. Elaboration according to the traditional method. The base wine ferments at low temperature in small stainless steel and concrete vats, then a second fermentation takes place in the bottle. The wine is then aged on laths for a minimum of 3 years.
On the nose, the wine is tense, with pastry notes. Roundness in the mouth, balance and a long and harmonious finish. A real treat !
Alain Voge took over the family estate located in Cornas in 1958. Upon his arrival, he started a revolution in the vineyard: abandonment of polyculture, replanting of abandoned hillsides, abandonment of bulk sales, etc. The wines of the estate gradually stood out and the quality of the Cornas and Saint-Péray wines continued to increase.
In the early 2000s, the estate converted to organic farming and went further in 2013 by cultivating its vines with biodynamic methods.
The wines of the Alain Voge estate are of high quality and express the terroir of the Right Bank of the Rhone at its best.
Alain Voge is no longer with us but Lionel Fraisse, who arrived at the domain in 2012, continues the practices that have been in place since 1958.
