Founded in 1928, the planting and layout of our estate was developed by our father, Edmond Declaux. Today the brothers work manually on the 5.8 hectares of vines on the narrow hillside of the Tupin and Semons hillside.

The Côte-Rôtie is a wine that guards its secrets. Lovers of old vintages will keep them 10-15 years before they taste. However, Côte-Rôtie can be appreciated as soon as bottled, the wine will present aromas of black fruits, spices and a dense mouth characteristic of the Côte-Rôtie on their youth.
