The estate is certified organic by Ecocert. This cuvée is made from a single parcel of land, Chaillot: 1 parcel of 0.4 hectares planted in 1970. In keeping with the 'Terre Brûlée' cuvée, which has always included Chaillot in its blend, only a portion will be bottled separately. Situated on the north-eastern slope of this renowned terroir, it benefits from the first rays of sunshine in the morning and will still be sunny very late in the evening. Exposed to the north wind, the temperatures are cooler, but the long hours of sunshine during the day bring well-balanced ripeness.


The grapes are hand-picked and kept whole for fermentation. Fermentation is carried out using only indigenous yeasts, in stainless steel vats. Maceration lasts 3 weeks, with pumping over during the first few days, followed by daily crushing. The estate does not use any oenological additives, even so-called natural ones, apart from a very limited amount of sulphur. In the same spirit, no filtration or fining is carried out. The wines are aged for 18 months. Racking and bottling are carried out according to the lunar calendar.

Until the middle of the year 2000, there were two Lionnet estates in the commune of Cornas: the Rochepertuis estate, belonging to Jean Lionnet, which no longer exists; and the one called "Terre Brûlée" (Celtic for "burnt earth"), which is discussed here. The Lionnet family has owned vines since 1575. Generations of winegrowers and winemakers have followed one another, up to Pierre Lionnet. Unfortunately, however, he suffered from health problems in the early 2000s and was forced to hand over the reins of the business to his daughter Corinne and son-in-law Ludovic Izerable. The couple took over with the 2001 vintage, following his advice, and the official and complete takeover will be with the 2003 vintage. Over the years and under Pierre's leadership, the estate has decreased in volume, abandoning the most expensive parcels to work or those not retained during the division of the Cornas AOC. Thus, if the grandfather owned five hectares, at the time of Ludovic and Corinne's arrival, the property had only two. After the death of Pierre Lionnet, they banned the use of synthetic products. At the beginning, they planted grass in their vineyards, but the yields fell seriously, even excessively for certain plots. Thus, little by little, they moved towards a less "submissive" organic culture, integrating soil work that allows the vine to be more balanced in its vegetative cycle. With...
