Detailed information

Vintage

The weather was quite challenging for the 2021 vintage. The mild temperatures of the winter brought forward the emergence of the buds which did not resist the frost of early April. The stormy summer required more vigilance concerning the sanitary state of the grapes. Despite low yields, the high standard of grape selection allowed us to produce very elegant and tasty wines.

Grape varieties

Syrah

Terroir

Our parcel selection sources from:
– “Serine” grapes (Syrah especially selected from the most robust non-clonal vines) and classic Syrah from the South-facing granite slopes at 250m in altitude in the northern St Joseph communes of Malleval and Roche Courbe. These terroirs produce wines with delicate smoky, spicy and violet aromas as well as a refreshing livelyness.
– Syrah from complex granite-based slopes facing Southwest at 200m in altitude in the central part of the St Joseph appellation around St Jean de Muzols.
