2020 Alain Voge Cotes du Rhone Les Peyrouses
Every so often, a wine comes around that makes you truly understand why a region is famous. This is one of those wines.
Domaine Alain Voge helped to re-establish the appellations of Cornas and Saint Péray on the international wine scene. Alain took over the domaine with his mother in 1965, at age 26, when his father died unexpectedly. He’s risen to the forefront with his wines from less prestigious places, now receiving more of the recognition they deserve. With 7 hectares of 70 individual plots filled with 60 year old vines impressive wines emerge under winemaker Albéric Mazoyer, formerly of Maison Chapoutier.
"With the purpose of ensuring very high standards to maintain superb quality for our Cornas wines, for our winemaking we handle separately grapes from our youngest vines (less than 10 years old) or those that come from terroirs which are trickier in difficult years. To this quantity that varies from one vintage to another, we add wine produced organically, which we buy from a terroir situated as close as possible to Cornas. It possesses the qualities of freshness we seek and will blend coherently with the wine that comes from our youngest vines."
