Domaine Alain Voge is a wine producer in the Cornas appellation (AOC / AOP) in the northern Rhône Valley in France. The winery is located in the village Cornas, near the centre of this rural French commune. Alain Voge has run this winery for many years and made it into one of the most well-respected names in this region. Today day-to-day management and winemaking is in the hands of Alberic Mazoyer, a very passionate, talented and ambitious winemaker.
The Domaine Alain Voges makes a quite wide range of wines. First there is of course the Cornas, red wines made exclusively from the syrah grape, three different cuvees from different terroirs and in different styles: Les Chailles, Vieilles Vignes and Vieilles Fontaines (old is good it seems). They also have a red Saint Joseph, four different white wines from the little-known Saint Péray appellation (one of which is sparkling), and a Côtes du Rhône Syrah. The vineyards of domaine Alain Voge are managed organically with an almost reverential respect for the soil. Very little is mechanised, most vineyard work is done by hand. The winery is small, hidden in a cul-de-sac alley in the old village. It is traditionally equipped. Some of the wines are aged in oak barrels but the wines are not really marked by the oak. It is more a question of giving just a touch of extra structure.
