A tiny domaine of just over 2 hectares, but the terroir is good, including holdings in Chaillot, and the vines are very old. winemaking is Uber-traditionalist: no additives, indigenous yeasts, cement vat fermentation, no new oak, large casks, no destemming.

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Ludovic and Corinne own just shy of a hectare of Saint-Joseph, in the village of Châteaubourg—the southernmost village in the appellation, just north of Cornas. Half of their holding is a younger parcel, and the other half was planted in the 1950s, both on clay-limestone soils with a high occurrence of large limestone galets. As with their Cornas, they vinify the Saint-Joseph without de-stemming, and age it for 18 months in used 600-liter demi-muids before bottling without fining or filtration. This is Saint-Joseph with a Cornas sensibility: embracing of its spiciness, firmly structured, and rivetingly mineral-driven.
