Although the two winemakers Francois Dauvergne and Jean-Francois Ranvier only founded in 2014, they managed to become one of the absolute top companies for Rhône wines within a few years. For Rhône fans, there is basically no passing - the excellent and exciting wines with an astonishingly good price-enjoyment ratio also inspire.
Wine Makers Notes
The appellation of Saint Jospeh runs across a lender area of land measuring 50kms between Chavanay in the north, to Guilherand Granges in the south. The soil is varied with light gneiss or granite shale. Primarily south south-east facing. The name Saint Jospeh was given to this region by the Jesuits of Tournon in the XVIIIth century. It was between 1956 and 1969 that all of the vineyards in this area of the Côtes du Rhône were regrouped and given the AOP Saint Jospeh Appellation. Currently the appellation covers more than 1200ha, and produces close to 40,000hl, with an average return of 36hl/ha.
Our Vin rare comes mainly from vineyards situated on grenite terraces. Our blend is made from 100% Syrah grapes. The harvest started after the traditional tasting of the grapes. Fermentation took place at low temperature in order to preserve all aromas. A part of the blend was aged in oak barrels.
The color is dark red, almost violet. The nose i dominated by black berries (blackcurrant and blackberries) and shows a hint of violet flavours, with rosated notes. The palate is charming with its creamy and full-bodied aromas, and the finish is caracterized by its nice fullness.
