Domaine Jean-Louis Chave St. Joseph Offerus 2011

Sku: 024879

The Offerus project started with the 1995 vintage. As the appellation of St. Joseph has expanded in size over the past few years, Jean-Louis' goal was to search out small domains from the heart of the appellation, with values reflecting those which he requires for making his own wine. He wanted to recreate a St. Joseph which is truly expressive of the Eastern granitic slopes of the Ardéche region, rather than a homogenized version not expressive of its roots. Jean-Louis found ten domaines with which to work. In order to ensure the quality of the wines, he is in contact with the domaines throughout the growing season, during the harvest, and through the vinification. Because of this investment of time, Jean-Louis has gotten them to work organically, to produce lower yields, and to learn the importance of making a wine expressive of the terroir specific to their soil.
