Tasting Notes: Dark Fruit, Meaty, Spice Notes, Bright
Aurélien Chatagnier created his own domaine in 2002 while he was just in his early 20s. He doesn’t come from a winemaking family, but as a teenager he worked in the vines for Domaine Jamet, where he became inspired to learn more about winemaking. He worked for several years with François Villard, who eventually pushed him to head out on his own.
Chatagnier farms organically and utilizes a low intervention method of winemaking. The wines tend to be pure and lean in style with mostly used oak, limited extraction, and no fining or filtration. A refined and drinkable bottle of 100% Syrah.
