Appellation

Variety

Gamay

'La Savane' comes from a 2-hectare parcel in Ardoix, a rugged landscape deep into the hills of the Ardèche, that Cécillon acquired in 2016. Vinified in the same style as their VdF Syrah, 'La Savane' is a rich and textured Rhône-style Gamay. The first time that the Cecillons arrived on this parcel, they could barely see the vines, hence the name (which means 'savannah.')
