The Details

100% Syrah from a quietly renegade voice in the Northern Rhône, making natural wine here for about 2 decades in a very classic outfitting. Unfined, unfiltered, minimal SO2 at bottling. 12%ABV

From the importer: 
This single-vineyard wine was planted in 2007, and while Aurélien considers it to be one of his best terroirs, it was never classified AOC Saint-Joseph because the owner had not originally planted vines there, and was unable to request the appellation later. Aurélien does not know the official name of the parcel, but has nicknamed it Le Crêt Louison, in honor of the granddaughter of the owner who rents him the vineyard.

About Rhône Valley

Wines from the Rhône Valley, located in southeastern France, are celebrated for their diversity and exceptional quality. This historic wine region is divided into the Northern Rhône and the Southern Rhône, each offering distinct styles of wine. In the Northern Rhône, Syrah is the dominant grape variety, producing elegant and full-bodied red wines such as Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, known for their rich flavors of dark fruits and peppery spice. In the Southern Rhône, blends are the hallmark, with Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre often leading the way, resulting in robust reds like Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, featuring bold fruit profiles, herbal nuances, and a touch of Mediterranean warmth. The Rhône Valley's white wines, predominantly made from Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne grapes, exhibit freshness and complexity, with notable examples like Condrieu and Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc. Overall, Rhône Valley wines showcase the region's terroir-driven character, making them a favorite among wine enthusiasts worldwide.
