Origin France, Rhône
District Northern Rhone

ABV 13%

Made from Gaylord's older vines (thirty year old in 2015), this upper cuvée is produced from lower yields of 35hl/ha, and is all aged in wood - large 'demi-muid' barrels, some new, some which have had one wine in previously. A fuller, richer wine than its brother Cuvée Ghany, it is still in the same supple, elegant style with excellent juice and definition. Drinking range: 2018 - 2024 L&S (Sep 2018)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Domaine Gaylord Machon

Domaine Gaylord Machon is in Beaumont-Monteux, in the heart of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation, on 'les châssis' a name which derives from the numerous large stones found in this area, which make for a particularly free-draining soil. 5% of the domaine is Marsanne and Roussanne, from which a tiny amount of white is made, the rest being all Syrah for the two cuvées of red. All the work in the vines is manual, including the harvest. Gaylord took over 5 hectares of family vines in 2002, the produce of which he took to the co-op, like his forbears, until 2008, when he began to sell the grapes of what was then an enlarged 8.5 hectares to Paul Jaboulet Ainé. In 2011 he made his first wine. He is a qualified winemaker, and had trained with Luc Tardy and Laurent Combier, among others. Gaylord built his own vinification cellar in 2014, and today vinifies about half his red production and all the white.
