Limony (Rhône)
Domaine Louis Chèze

The family property was taken over in 1978 by Louis Chèze. The Domaine is located on the top of the hillside of the commune of Limony, on the right bank of the Rhône, 60 km south of Lyon, in the heart of the northern Côtes du Rhône vineyard. Louis Chèze started the venture with only 1 ha of Saint Joseph and some vines he rented. Today the house represents 35 ha of prestigious appellations such as Condrieu, Saint Joseph and Pays des Collines Rhôdaniennes.
His determination, inquiring mind, and meticulousness are applied to take care of the vineyard and the development of the wines. Each vintage is a new challenge to obtain the terroirs’ quintessence.
The vineyard is run according to sustainable wine growing, where the main concern is the respect of the grapevine. At the Chèze estate, each vineyard is handled according to the specificities of each parcel. If the slope allows for it, grapevine trellising is used; and if not, grapevine stakes are used on the slopes.
The reds are aged in barrels, using a mix of eight different coopers to achieve his house style of silky texture, lilting perfume, and supple sanguine finishes. The whites are fermented in barrels and tend to show explosive aromas and rich, almost oily textures.
