Domaine de la Ville Rouge

Basic Info

Under the direction of Sébastien Girard since he took over from his father in almost 10 years ago. Domaine de la Ville Rouge has been growing and selling grapes since Sébastien’s great grandfather purchased a few hectares in 1919. The vineyards of Ville Rouge are set on the three terraces of Le Chassis, an alluvial plain that composes the largest expanse of the appellation. Located south of the famous hill of Hermitage, it’s one of the most dynamic sections of the appellation and boasts full exposure to sun and wind, marking these richly textured Syrahs with power and intensity. Fully organic since 2009 and will be through biodynamic conversion at the end of this year.
