2017 Domaine Alary "La Grange Daniel" Roussanne, 750ml

Availability: In stock (6)

A fuller-bodied and roundly textured Rhone white wine. 100% organically farmed Roussanne from stony clay soils of the Southern Rhone.

From the mouth of the importer (Weygandt-Metzler):

"The Alary family's involvement in viticulture and wine production dates back as far as 1692, to the reign of Louis XIV. Tradition, passion and 'savoir fair' are key elements to tendering vines and maturing wines and the acquired experience has been passed on from one generation to the next. In all, 10 generations have successively played their part in building this edifice, guided by a healthy respect for nature and for the general environment. Proof of this conviction can be found in a later stage in the development of the vineyard with Denis’ decision in 2009 to convert to organic farming after many years mastering traditional production techniques. Denis has the range of Cairanne terroirs; south-facing slopes with white and blue clays-soils, the lower terraces of the 'Garrigues', the high plateau with cobbles covering underlying white and red clays, along with the richer soils close to the Plan de Dieu. This patchwork gives birth to a selection of great red wines; some of a more powerful, rich, full-bodied but harmonious style, others of a lighter, fresher more fruity style."
