Maison Les Alexandrins

Northern Rhône, northern rhone France

Maison & Domaine Les Alexandrins is the newly renamed collaboration between Nicolas Jaboulet, formerly of the eponymous winery in Tain, the Perrin family from Château de Beaucastel, winemaker Guillaume Sorrel and viticulturalist Alexandre Caso. The partnership stems from a long-standing friendship, a shared love of gastronomy and an aim to create wines that represent the best of their appellations. Each person brings their own expertise to this 'micro-négociant' established in 2015. Maison Les Alexandrins is the négociant side of the business and these wines incorporate fruit purchased from a selection of the top growers in each appellation of the Northern Rhône, whereas the fruit for the Domaine Les Alexandrins wines comes entirely from estate-owned vineyards in Saint Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage.

The Crozes-Hermitage Blanc is a blend of Marsanne and Roussanne, fermented separately then blended and aged in new French oak for 10 months. This adds complexity and richness to the honeyed and ripe stone fruit aromas, while the quality of the fruit ensures an incredibly long finish. The Condrieu is made from Viognier sourced from the Côteau de Cherry and the Côteau de Rozay, both situated at altitude which gives the resulting wine great freshness. The Crozes-Hermitage Rouge is aged in large 55 - 80 hectolitre wooden vats for 10 months, softening the tannins and maintaining freshness. It is fragrant and juicy with hints of black pepper, fine tannins and balanced acidity. Grapes for the Saint-Joseph are from the north of the appellation and also from the historic centre. The former give minerality and fruitiness, while the latter provide more flesh and body. The Côte-Rôtie is round and velvety while still possessing the heady perfume of violets.
