A superb, fresh and fruity Saint-Joseph - irresistibly tasty. More info

This white Saint-Joseph owes its name to the lieu-dit at the southern end of the village of Tournon. Its constituent Marsanne and Roussanne grapes benefited from granite subsoils and red clay soils sparsely covered with pudding stones. In the cellar, pressing is particularly slow. The white must is settled, vinified and matured on the lees in new barrels for eleven months with some regular stirring. The Gonon brothers allow the wines to undergo malolactic fermentation. Les Oliviers reveals a round, creamy palate that opens into attractive bitter notes. At the same time, notes of citrus, honey, flowers and gourmet spices deliver a particularly fresh, persistent finish. This organically certified wine deserves to be enjoyed with true gourmet dishes. Scallops or risottos with truffles would fit the bill perfectly!

Saint-Joseph Tunnel (Domaine du) serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Boeuf Stroganov, Tian tomates aubergines courgettes, Boudin noir grillé.

Information about domain Tunnel

Stéphane Robert and his wife Sandrine established their property in 1994. It takes its name from the stone tunnel running beneath the land. The 9-hectare vineyard spans three appellations: Saint Péray, Saint Joseph and Cornas. Stéphane has made a name for himself in the region, and makes wines that are ideal for ageing. The couple practices sustainable viticulture, working all their land manually or with a horse where the terrain permits this. The steepest plots are ploughed with the help of a winch. The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted in situ.
