Number of wine boxes of 3 bottles to add to basket:

The opinion of the sommelier

Les Rocailles, by the very talented winemaker Pierre Finon, does honour the great appellation of Saint-Joseph. A powerful wine that expresses delicious aromas of blueberry and black pepper, and refreshed by notes of violet specific to syrah. On the palate, a beautiful finish with tannins that shows us a strong wine with a great ageing potential. 

 

Terroir

Located on the slopes of the right bank of the Rhone Valley, the vineyard of the Domaine Pierre Finon enjoys a granite soil covered with a layer of gneiss and shale. It is a soil rich in minerals, which is typical in the north of the Rhone Valley. It offers fine wines with deep ripe fruits and spices.

lecepage Grape variety

Syrah is the emblematic black grape of the northern part of the Rhone Valley and the only black grape of the Saint-Joseph appellation. It has a spicy character and delicious aromas of violet that it expresses in the wines it gives, as fine as complex. A balance bet-ween power and finesse specific to the Northern Rhone Valley.

lemillesime Vintage

The 2015 vintage was a great success in the Rhône Valley. The vine grow its grapes slowly thanks to a mild spring. Then, the incredibly hot summer allowed the grapes to ripen well. The harvest season came, the rain allowed to refresh and rehydrate the vine. The harvest showed grapes with an ideal ripening and a nice volume of juice. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

At the age of 20, Pierre Finon chose, for the sake of the vineyard, to transform his farm into a wine estate. Year after year, vine stock after vine stock, the estate grew to what it is today. Moreover Françoise and Pierre Finon back a development of the vine that preserves the environment. Thus, the domain is led in sustainable agriculture on the 20 hectares, to encourage the expression and the potential of its terroir.
