Description

Bernard Levet Amethyste is produced from 100% Syrah that comes from vines planted in both the Cote Blonde and the Cote Brune, as well as in the Baleyat, Chavaroche and Mollard lieux-dits.

A portion of the grapes are destemmed, (30-50%) never more than half of the grapes are whole bunch fermented.

The wine is aged in a combination of new and used 600 liter oak casks, of which 30% are new and oak foudres. The production ranges from 500 to 600 cases per vintage. The wine was first produced in 2006."

Generational producer with top notch plots on the slopes of Cote-Rotie and all farmed organically. The daughter in charge here now, and pushing some of the boundaries while adhering to tradition. A combination of vineyards here. Importers Notes
