Since taking over from the Jaboulet family, the team of Jacques Frey and winemaker Desvernois began double sorting the grapes (in the vineyards and in the winery), moved all vineyards to sustainable farming, and built a gravity operated cellar that started working in 2010.
La Chapelle is made from the rockiest parcels of Le Méal, Les Bessards, Les Rocoules and Les Greffieux.
The grapes 100% Syrah, are 100% destemmed, and fermented parcel by parcel. The amount of new French oak used for ageing is around 20% new every year.
The wine production was reduced to 24.000 bottles a year.
