For five generations, the Stehelin family has upheld a legacy of winemaking. Since 1978, Nicole and Frédéric have overseen operations at the Paillère en Pied-Gû estate. Their eldest son, Bertrand, joined them, eventually branching out to establish his own venture, "Bertrand Stehelin," in 2004. Starting with just 4 acres, Bertrand steadily expanded his vineyard.

Situated on quaternary terraces adorned with large, weathered stones, the vines, aging between 60 and 80 years, flourish. Harvesting involves meticulous destemming, followed by aging in stainless steel barrels for 12 to 15 months, preserving the essence of the land and the family's dedication to quality winemaking.

 

Revealing a vibrant ruby red core, this wine offers an enticing bouquet where ripe blackberries intertwine harmoniously with subtle floral hints of violets and elderflower. A refreshing touch of menthol adds depth to the aroma. On the palate, a fresh and fruity sensation captivates, complemented by a silky texture and seamlessly integrated tannins. With each sip, the wine reveals layers of complexity, culminating in a long and impeccably balanced finish that lingers, leaving you ready for the next sip.
