A rising star of the Northern Rhone, Jean-Baptiste returned to St Joseph after working in New Zealand, Australia, California, Bordeaux and Burgundy.  He has sought out small high altitude parcels that express balance and elegance.  Quantities of each cuvee are often tiny as Jean Baptise seeks to focus on single parcel expressions. 

Jean Baptiste seeks freshness in his wines, so has sought out vines mainly on the top of slopes as well as being planted on granite.  All his vineyards are listed as 'lute raisonnee'.

These Saint-Joseph vines were planted in the early 1970s and 2000s.  East-facing, 300m altitude on granite soils. Partial whole cluster, fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks with a 3 weeks maceration with pump-overs.  Aged in used oak barrels for 13 month with racking and bottled un-fined and unfiltered.
