Created by Robert and Yvette Michelas in 1961, the domaine is now managed by their 4 children: Sylvie, Florence, Corine and Sébastien.
The estate extends over 50 hectares of the northern Rhône with the majority of the vines in the Crozes-Hermitage appellation. Parcels are situated in the villages of Larnage, Mercurol, Beaumont-Monteux and Pont de L’Isère with a variety of soils including granite, clay, pebbles and shale.
The vineyards are managed by Sébastien, the youngest of the Michelas children. Yields are controlled by the sparing use of fertiliser, strict winter pruning and a green harvest in summer if necessary. Leaves are removed in late summer to allow the sun to reach the fruit and improve ventilation. All the crop is hand-harvested to ensure optimum quality.

"100% Syrah, destemmed and fermented at a low temperature in order to maximise the fruit and freshness. Given 15 days of maceration on the skins, with daily remontage, this is vividly fruity with lovely blackberry aromas. Rich and generous on the palate with ripe, supple tannins and splendid length on the finish. Drink 2020-2025. "
