Christopher Keiller - Alain Voge producer notes
Alain Voge is a quiet and thoughtful man who makes wines in a traditional way in his cellars in Cornas. He is one of the few vignerons making a still Saint Peray, a white wine of which the composer Richard Wagner was particularly fond. In December 1877, while Wagner was composing Parsifal, he sent a letter urgently requesting 100 bottles of Saint Peray to be despatched without delay. Perhaps there is some essence of St Peray hidden away among the leit motifs of the opera!
