About the Winery:

Domaine la Florane represents three generations of vignerons, two terroirs, but one same family spirit. Originally Domaine la Florance was the name for the wines made from vines in Visan, on land handed down by the family of Marie-Pierre Fabre.

The vines in Saint-Maurice, meanwhile, bore the name of  Domaine de l’Échevin. Guillaume de Rouville, a family ancestor who was mayor of Lyon in 1586, owned land in the Rhône Valley, back when silk ruled supreme. He inspired the name Domaine de l’Échevin, created by François Fabre in the 1990s.

In 2001, the family’s two estates began using the same, specially-built cellar, but each estate kept its name. Then in 2019, they were united at last under one name.

The cuvée names are unchanged: Échevin  and Guillaume de Rouville  are still used for the wines from the Saint-Maurice appellation. 

Wines are made by Adrien Fabre (partner of Claire Michel of Le Vieux Donjon in Châteauneuf-du-Pape). Organic and Biodynamic farming on clay soils.

About this Wine:

Conceived as a young and convivial spirit. It’s a way of life: a subtle blend of colors and flavors, to simply please the senses. The Blanc is a blend of every white variety grown in the region — Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier, Bourboulenc, Clairette, and Piquepoul — and is superbly fresh and bright. A wine of appealing simplicity, with a fresh discreet nose. On the palate there is a mix of lemon and lime notes alongside flavors of mandarin orange and radish that makes this surprisingly textural wine great on its own or paired with lighter foods like salad, cheese, or white meats.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Jame Sucklling (2021):
"Extremely youthful nose of Mediterranean herbs and lime zest. Surprisingly light-footed and gentle for this warm location. Crisp finish, in which discreet creaminess is interwoven with flinty freshness. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification." (Feb 2022)
