Le saint-joseph rouge est le premier vin réalisé par ce jeune domaine qui travaille en agriculture biologique et vinifie son vin de la façon la plus naturelle qui soit. 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!
This new domain was established in 2003 in Cheminas, a small village on the plateau above Tournon, in the south of the Saint-Joseph appellation. Its founders, Paul Estève and Chrystelle Vareille, cultivate 3 hectares of Saint-Joseph wines and 1.3 hectares of Syrah and Viognier for Vin de Pays. Their approach to both growing and winemaking is meticulous. The soil is turned either by a horse, with a hand-guided plough and winch or by mattock, and the vines are protected and strengthened with the help of plants and clay. The wines are produced as naturally as possible. Grapes are fermented with indigenous yeasts, temperatures are altered very little and there is no filtering or fining to allow the wines to fully express their terroir
