The history of Christophe Semaska is linked to the revival in 1988, of a great Cote Rotie Domaine: Le Chateau de Montlys, a gem left untouched since the 1789 revolution. This 16th century domaine sits on a hillside facing the Rhone River, a privileged location for exploiting the vines and it remains the largest privately owned with 8 ha of terraced vineyards on the appellation. Chateau de Montlys disappeared from the tables for 70 years after the last winemaker went off to fight during WWI and the total devastation of the vineyards by phylloxera. Due to technical and economic expansion, a new winery was built in 2011 with the best equipment for vinification, maturation and cellaring. Christophe draws on all his knowledge in detail to achieve excellence with the love and the passion for his terroir to shine even brighter.

Clay-limestone soil, mica schist typical of the Cotes Brunes. Four hectares of vines planted on south, south-east facing hillside terraces.

The vine stock comprises 100% Syrah, and 90% is de-stemmed.

Hand-harvested and vinified for 20 to 30 days in closed, temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Homogenization is achieved automatically due to thenatural force of carbonic gas created during fermentation. Maturation takes place for 24 months, half in new oak barrels, and in 1 to 3 year-old for the other half. The Syrah, which has existed since Roman times, produces a powerful, yet elegant and fine wine.

Packed with ripe fruit flavours with black currant, blackberry and pepper aromas.
