Chérubin: pure Viognier, this is the perfect accompaniment to salmon, hot or cold, or even some ambitious fish dishes such as the famous pike dumplings eaten in the Rhone Valley. It also pairs wonderfully with goats' milk cheeses.
The grapes are picked early in the morning to when it is cool to ensure that they delivered to the winery in the very best condition. After crushing, destemming, and gentle pressing, the juice is settled for 48 hours. After racking, the juices are fermented separately at temperatures of 12°C in stainless steel tanks (75%) and barrels (25%). The fermentation can last up to two months lending both fruitness and elegance to the wine. After blending, the wines are bottled in early spring conserving their freshness.

Colour: Bright yellow with intense green lights.
Nose: Complex, expressive and true to type with some hints of box hedge, exotic fruits and tinned apricots finishing with the aroma of orange blossom.

Cellaring: Excellent drunk young, but will become increasingly honeyed with time.
