Domaine Pichat
Côte-Rôtie Champon’s

Stéphane is a very talented winemaker who started producing wine in 2000. Obviously we rate him, but so does Robert Parker. We are extremely fortunate in securing supplies of two of his wonderful cuvées: Champon, originating from 3 Parcels (Champon’s, Plomb and Cognet) and barrel-aged for 24 months, and Les Grandes Places, made from a single plot on this fabulous site, matured for 36 months in new oak barriques.

Domaine Pichat has 4.5 hectares of vineyards in several areas such as Champon’s, Cognet, le Plomb, Fongeant, la Gerine, les Grandes Places or La Caille for Condrieu. The work is different on each plot. They adapt to the type of soil and the layout and exposure of each one. The only goal is to produce the healthiest grapes and mature as much as possible. All the work in the vineyards and treatments performed are sustainable, no use of pesticide or insecticide and the vast majority of their crop protection products are certified organic.
