This producer actually straddles the two districts, as they have vines in the village of Vion, one of St. Joseph’s original six villages but not one that you hear about much. But most of their vines are just north of there in the village of Arras, so it’s in this section of the list. They have some interesting terroir on steep, rocky terraced sites, some of which bear limestone soils (which are not at all common in St. Joseph). This is a top-quality producer making classical St. Joseph.

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

This special, limited cuvée (approximately 3000 bottles per annum) is produced from two parcels in Arras that are on steep, rocky hillsides. Although from young vines, the excellent position of the vineyards yields a wine of compelling concentration, plum-like fruit and emphatic structure. Vinification is similar to the St. Joseph “Tradition” but the elevage is longer. Again, the wine is neither fined nor filtered.
