Crozes Hermitage Rouge `Silene`
Saint Joseph Blanc `Circa`
"Circa," formally know as "Celeste," is a blend of old-vine Roussane planted in Mauves on granitic slopes. It is the only white made by Jean Louis that comes from granitic soil. The first vintage produced was 2009 after the purchase of a historic St. Joseph domaine. The wine has made such an impression on Jean-Louis that he continues to plant more Roussanne.
Saint Joseph Offerus
The St. Joseph ‘Offerus’ is a blend of 10 different terroirs in St. Joseph.
"Blanche" comes mainly from the lieu-dit Maison Blanche which sits atop the hill of Hermitage.
"Farconnet" is sourced from three distinct parcels: Diognières, Péleat, and Greffieux. Depending on the vintage, it contains some domaine fruit that did not make it into the domaine Hermitage bottling along with purchased fruit from vignerons Jean-Louis knows well.
