CHRISTOPHE SEMASKA CONDRIEU LYS D'OR 2017

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.
