The European regulation on organic farming covers not only the production and processing but also the control and packaging of organic food. A product may claim the word ‘organic’ when the rules specific to organic production defined in one of the regulations recognized by the European Community are complied with, and the operator has obtained a valid certificate for that product. To this end, each operator undertakes to be controlled at each stage of the production chain by an independent third party accredited according to the ISO 65 standard, such as ECOCERT. Our Spanish wines are certified by the regional organization CAECyL, Public Control Authority for Organic Production of Castilla y León, itself mandated by the Spanish National Accreditation Body.

Demeter products have a double certification: they are controlled and certified organic according to the European specifications and according to the Demeter specifications. Demeter biodynamic certification is used in over 50 countries, it guarantees the respect of the biodynamic principles on farm property and during the transformation of the products.
Ratings "Coteau De Chery 2017 White"
Jancis Robinson - 18/20
" Biodynamic. ‘I like when the soil comes on top of the flavour of the Viognier’, says Michel Chapoutier.
Lovely saline note with excellent apricot-jam aromas and an exquisite peach-skin character on the finish. Long, warm and fulsome on the finish. An excellent combination of rich fruit and mineral terroir character."
Vinous - 94/100
In the Rhone Valley, or through the most beautiful regions of France and the world, the Maison M. CHAPOUTIER lets the terroir express itself.
the attack is fresh, well-balanced, mineral and salty notes with an aromatic and quiet tight final.
Sommelier's advice: It has its typical hint of spice and a subtle note of cardamom, within a dense, fine texture. The grape variety plays a supporting role and allows the granite soil to set out a straight trajectory.
Grapes are hand-harvested in boxes.
Grapes come from eroded granitic soils and mica-schists. The plot is south-facing.
The whole bunches are pressed. Fermentation is carried out under controlled temperature (17°C) in casks with natural yeasts.
The wine is aged in 600 litre-barrels for 8 months, and then for 2 months in vats.
