This Saint-Joseph wine, with a deep red colour and ruby glints, has a fruity aroma. Cherry and raspberry flavours blend to give an excellent taste, tannins are present but silky. It goes well with a roast leg or rack of lamb.
About the winemaker: Andre Perret
His passion for vines made this Biology graduate return to this village, where he succeeded his father in 1982. The farmland, then mainly occupied by fruit-trees, was planted with vine-stocks and extended to 13 hectares.André Perret is willing to preserve terroir and nature, even if this involves difficulties such as terrace cultivation of the vines on steep hillsides. He is also keen to avoid systematic treatments of his vines; pesticides are only used as and when required. Yields are controlled too, in order to achieve the quality and authenticity requirements that he himself has fixed.
