Les Voraces IGP Collines Rhodaniennes


Famille de Boel France is a small family estate owned by Nelly France and Arnaud De Boel. Nelly, who is originally from Brittany, met Arnaud (who is Belgian) when they were working in New Zealand in 2009. Interested in biodynamic farming and winemaking, the couple decided to purchase vineyards in the Northern Rhône. In addition to holdings in Cornas and Saint Joseph, the couple also own some land in the Southern Rhône close to the villages of Suze-la-Rousse and Sainte-Cécile-les-Vignes. Together Nelly and Arnaud craft honest and food-friendly wines meant to be shared with family and friends.

“‘Les Voraces’ is a pure expression of Syrah from the northern Rhone in the Collines Rhodaniennes IGP, where only stainless steel is used for fermentation, and a short aging to give as much varietal characteristic as possible. This young vineyard is hand-harvested when the fruit has reached a perfect balance between pH and sugar development, and brought in for a natural fermentation. The De Boel family uses a gentle vertical press after fermentation and malolactic usually happens around February. By March or April the wine is bottled and sent to market to show its purest form, with notes of peppery spice, blackberry, boysenberry, and a touch of cured meat. On the palate the wine is fresh, but has deep complexity, showing dark berry fruit, spice, licorice, and great minerality.”
