Overview

Named for the 12th century chapel on the property, La Chapelle Rouge is made from a blend of younger vine Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault planted on clay limestone and sandy clay soils. Each variety is fermented separately in stone vats dating to the 18th century with the Grenache and Cinsault seeing shorter macerations to preserve their fruit and aromas while the Syrah is macerated longer.
