Domaine Chèze is a family property taken over in 1978 by Louis Chèze. This estate is located on the top of the hill in the town of Limony, on the right bank of the Rhône, in the heart of the northern Côtes du Rhône vineyards.

Louis Chèze started the adventure with 1 ha of Saint Joseph. Today the estate covers 35 ha in prestigious appellations such as Condrieu, Saint Joseph and Vin de Pays.

Not a man for the limelight, Louis lets his wines do the talking for him. The reds are aged in barrel, using a mélange of eight different coopers to achieve his house style of silky texture, lilting perfume, and supple sanguine finishes. The whites are fermented in barrel and tend to show explosive aromas and rich, almost oily textures.


100 % Syrah

Vineyard & Vinification Note

This cuvee is developed since the 1987 vintage. It is grown in a plot located in the slopes of Brèze, at an altitude of 300 m with a South exposure. Caroline embodies the strength of Syrah, with its spicy flavour.

Land Geology: Granitic and muscovite elements., 35 to 40 years old, yield between 30 and 35 Hl/Ha.

Sustainable growing of the vineyard, épillonnage, green harvest and hand-picking harvesting. Grape selection on the vine plants, gathered in 30 kg boxes.

Grapes selection on a sorting table, stripping at 100%, berry selection on a vibrating table, masking, maceration and fermentation inside thermo-regulated small volume vats and malolactic fermentation in barrels.

20% in new barrels and 80% in barrels of 1 to 2 wines for 12 months. Bottling without filtration in a single operation.

Tasting Note

Brightly garnet colour. Violet smell, with subtle peppery hint. Ample and well structured taste, with quite a lengthy aromatic persistence in the finish.

Wine Spectator

This pulls you in with dark and winey currant and boysenberry compote flavors, with flecks of white pepper, sweet tobacco and dried anise adding range to hold your attention. Features sanguine and worn cedar hints that curl around the finish, giving this an old-school bent. Drink now through 2028. 2,500 cases made; 150 cases imported. 91 Points, James Molesworth, February 2022

Food Pairing

Grilled red meat, plate of regional cheese.
