Domaine Lionnet, Cornas

Categories: ,

This tiny domaine is owned by Ludovic Izerable, and his wife Corinne Lionnet, whose family has been growing grapes in the village of Cornas since 1575. Corinne took control of the domaine in 2003 when her father, Pierre, retired and she and Ludovic now run the show. The domaine is only 2.2 hectares, and the vineyards are organically farmed and are certified by “Ecocert”. The vineyards are divided into four separate parcels across four distinct lieu-dits: Mazards, Combes, Chaillot and Brugeres. The vines are all between the ages of 40 and 100 years, with each parcel harvested and vinified separately.
