It will also complement well aged hard cheese.

This 5th generation family owned winery is characterised by two different types of terroir. Next to the village of Gervans, 12 hectares of granite and loess (silty rock) soil terraces and 3 hectares of alluvial sediment down next to the Rhone River. Joseph has always tried to honour these two very different terroirs in his wine, as well as getting the maximum amount of flavour from his grapes. For this reason, in 2008 he decided to convert the winery to organic agriculture, and to eliminate the use of any chemical products. Both the Syrah and Marsanne grapes reach perfect maturity with the Rhone Valley sunshine, and help Joseph achieve his objective.
