Story

“Côteaux de Bassenon” is a single parcel co-planted with Syrah, Serine, and Viognier belonging to the village of Tupin. The parcel is in the Southern part of the AOP; the last parcel before Condrieu. Everything is worked by hand and with a winch. Special Gobelet pruning called cabane to elevate grapes. Soil is also worked with pickaxe.
