The farm estate has belonged to the Verzier family since 1828. It is situated at the top of the hillsides overlooking the village of Chavanay, just next to the statue ‘Madone d’Izeras’ and is surrounded by Saint Joseph and Condrieu vineyards. Chavanay is on the right bank of the river Rhône and is approximately 50km south of Lyon.

The small estate has grown and today covers 10 Ha. Maxime, Philippe and Isabelle’s son, joined them in 2016 after some professional experience in Alsace, Burgundy, Canada and South Africa. Maxime is very attached to his ‘terroir’ and he contributes with his new ideas and experiments that he has discovered during his trips abroad.

Tasting notes:
'Organic. Cask sample. Tasted blind. Gorgeous stemmy fragrance on the nose, seriously savoury black fruit with subtle peppercorn seasoning. More exciting on the nose than the palate and length, but there should be more to come with maturation. Soft tannins are almost ready to go.' – Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20
