DOMAINE ALAIN VOGE
Cornas, Northern Rhône
Domaine Alain Voge is one of the most classic estates in Cornas, whose wines are today made by the talented Lionel Fraisse. The Northern Rhône is planted predominantly with Syrah, which produces beautifully expressive reds in part thanks to the area’s hard, mineral-rich granite soils. Domaine Alain Voge has 12 hectares in total which are certified biodynamic. Three Cornas wines are produced, starting with Les Chailles; which is made from 40-year-old vines, followed by Les Vieilles Vignes from 80-year-old vines. In exceptional years Les Vieilles Fontaines is also produced from the estate’s very best grapes. These are wines that illustrate the ripe fruit aromas and black pepper characteristics of Syrah in all its splendour, wines with a true sense of place which are gifted with impressive ageing potential.
