Emmanuel is one of the most engaging and enthusiastic winemakers, producing polished and generous wines. His winery is in La Roche de Glun, on a rather peculiar peninsular which cleaves the mighty Rhône river. Most of his vineyards are located in this alluvial sector, or a little further to the west in Mercurol. Emmanuel’s focus has always been on bringing out the individual expression of each parcel in order to allow the terroir to shine through. This is indeed a domaine where the work is well and truly carried out in the vineyard, the parcels being picked and vinified separately before being placed in wooden casks, vats or the larger demi-muids to continue their élevage. His Les Trois Chênes cuvée is made from only 20% of the whole crop of his 25- to 60-year-old vines. As well as making extremely impressive wines in his home appellation of Crozes-Hermitage, Emmanuel also owns 1.7 hectares of 30- to 80-year-old, south-east facing vines on granitic soil in St Joseph: the source of his stunning lieu dit cuvée La Dardouille. One point to note: this year we tasted representative samples of the final blend, but not the finished wines.
