Aleofane is a small Biodynamic Domaine with vineyards in Croze Hermitage and Saint Joseph. The Domaine was founded in 2004 by Natacha Chave, the younger sister of Yann Chave, who decided to continue the family tradition of wine making after studying philosophy at university. Both of Natasha’s wines have a delicate feel and freshness to them which sits perfectly alongside the warm, concentrated, spicy fruit.
Natasha’s Saint Joseph is from granite soils and has a wonderful blackberry and plum fruit character. There are violet notes and sweet anise spice along with pepper and graphite notes. It is a complex and enchanting wine that develops over hours in the glass.
