Aged for twelve months: 20% in new oak – 40% in one year old barrels - 40 % in two and three years old barrels.
Because our harvest finished in October, we managed to get a good ripening level, which was not always easy in the northern Rhone. Austerity is my ennemy for St Joseph winemaking!

These various dimensions fight or combine, depending on the stage. Jasmin, rose, blackberry, wood coal. Bottled without any filtration.
