More Information

Denis Alary and his family have been in the Cairanne region of the southern Rhone since 1692 so it’s fair to say that they know a thing or two about it. Cairanne has recently been promoted from Cotes du Rhone Village status to a fully fledged Cru (to rank alongside Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Tavel, Lirac and Châteauneuf-du-Pape), exciting changes are happening in the hamlet of Cairanne. This is in no small measure due to the patience and knowledge of Denis who has stood as the Chair of the Appellation for the past 20 years.

Customer review

  1. Chris Foster

    Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, 92 Points “This cuvée, the 2015 Cairanne L’Estevenas, contains fruit from some of the oldest Syrah vines in the Southern Rhône, planted around 1960. It’s full-bodied and concentrated, supple but firmly tannic, with a decade or more of aging potential. Cola and plum flavors develop lots of allspice, clove and pepper notes on the lingering finish.”
