"The average age of these vines is over 60 years old. Detailed and intense, with silky yet grippy tannins and incredible concentration, this needs time. But with time, it will be spectacular."
Situated on slopes at an altitude of approximately 200 metres, facing South-South-East, the vines of our classic wine are on average 60 years old. Their roots delve deep down into old, worn granite rock, called gores locally.
Tasting notes:Blended from some of the top lieux-dits of the appellation: Combe, Patou, La Côte, Les Mazards and Chaillot, it is then aged for 20 months in approximately 15% new oak. This dark, inky-hued wine retained a bright, fresh fruit notes of raspberries and plums and hints of cedar and menthol. Full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, with a firm, granitic structure and almost silky tannins and tremendous length to finish.
Story: This is their classic wine. The oldest of the Domain’s wines, it was created during the 1970s to highlight the long-standing family vineyard. Vines for this wine are located in the heart of the appellation, facing those we first replanted. Les Vieilles Vignes is a wine that reflects our history and our winemaking know-how.
Domaine Voge is located in Cornas, in the Rhone Valley. It is one of the most renowned estate of the designation. Voge estate was created by Henri Voge (Alain's grandfather). Alain's father died prematurely, that's why in 1965 he took over after his grandfather and developed bottling for the estate's wines (that used to be directly sold to the trade). The Alain Voge estate owns many great vineyards that are mostly located on the hillsides, and that covers 13 Ha, all in all, including 7 Ha of Rhone red (100% Syrah) in Cornas, 1 Ha in St Joseph, and 5 Ha of 100% white Marsanne located in Saint Peray Protected Designation of Origin. The biodynamic conversion of the estate started in 2006. It was fully achieved in 2013. With many old vines plots, the Alain Voge estate gets quality grapes to create different cuvees, among the wide range that they produce. In the Saint Peray Protected Designation of Origin, the Harmony, Ongrie, and Fleur de Crussol cuvees are produced. Fleur de Crussol is the most successful one (made from 70-year-old vines).
