Dumaine du Grangeon

In 1998 Christophe Reynouard took over the helm of the family estate, based in the far western edge of the Ardeche, from his father. Christophe studied farming practices and winemaking under the tutelage of the legendary Georges Verney, the legendary producer in Condrieu. Along with Chrystelle and their sons, they raise wines which are floral and profound, notably the ultra-rare Chatus.  The soils in their terraced parcels are Granite, in the form of sand.  The winery farms sustainably with no chemicals used in the vineyards.

2019 Syrah

Description

“Beautiful, with northern Rhone-like black pepper, blackberry, violets, olive tapenade, all emerging from the glass. Amazing precision and purity. Structured with loads of very fine-tannin and a perfect acidity. Complex and powerful, yet still very elegant. Medium-bodied, seamless and elegant, with a lightly textured and juicy feel.”

Description

“Clear light green in color.   Rich minerality, with zesty lime notes, framed by stone fruits.  Some peach and tropical notes with air.  Medium-bodied, yet lithe and racy on the palate. White stone fruits, framed by racy acidity which retains freshness”

2016 Chatus

Description

“Ample, violet-laced blackberry fruits, scorched earth, tar, graphite and licorice to go with a medium-bodied, structured, yet elegant profile on the palate. The texture is liquid granite and it flows over the tongue as if woven from the finest silk. Yet this medium-bodied wine is light and graceful, with notable, savory tannin and integrated acidity with cherry, spice and pepper.”
