The Story

The grapes producing "De L'Orée" come from the plot "Les Murets" in the Eastern part of the hill. The soil was formed by alluvium deposited by the Rhône and Isère Rivers during the Ice Age. It comprises of a mixture of rolled pebbles and sand. The old vines (70 years old) guarantee low yields of high quality grapes. De L'Orée is always a great critical favourite. Its Marsanne, so intense due to low yields and high ripeness, handles barrel fermentation without leaving overt oak tones. An amazing wine over time, its qualities of white fruit, honeysuckle, quince, hazelnut continue to awe all observers. It is one of the longest living dry white wines in France.  

Grape variety

Marsanne from 60 to 70 year old vines. Guarantees the high quality of this wine.

Written Notes

This is fabulous wine from Chapoutier. Soft but vigor, open-knit and expressive, it is one of the more gracious wines you will find in this Rhône vintage. Expressive floral and red-toned fruit notes give the 2010 its masculine but also sensual personality. 

  • 96p

Bright, yellow colour. Intense, smoky nose with honeyed overtones. Dry, intense, broad, mineral taste. Long spicy, mineral with broad finish. Refined and elegant with apricot stone finish. Refined but bit closed still. Benefits from 4 hours decanting if served now. Peaks in 2025 but will last at its peak another 5 years. Best with sauteed Turbot fillet and creamy truffle potatos.
