Wine produced from old vines. A terroir very well exposed in the village of Couchey. The richness of a good wine typical of the Côte de Nuits, corpulent, whose beautiful class and aromatic complexity are revealed after several years.
Cuvée 1551 – Saint-Chinian
This vintage speaks of Time. It is a tribute to our parents, our grandparents and all the generations of vine growers who have succeeded each other at the head of Château Viranel. We are today two brothers to work humbly on this soil that has carried our family since 1551. This wine is a careful selection of Syrah harvested manually; vinified in long maceration then refined by aging for 14 months in French oak barrels. With 1551 we hope to introduce you to the best of Viranel.
