Jean-François Jacouton - St Joseph "Souvenirs d'André"
A cuvée in homage to his grandfather André... A St Joseph of great finesse!
In 2010, Jean-François Jacouton created his cellar after having gained experience in different regions and his apprenticeship with one of the great winegrowers of the northern Côtes du Rhône such as "Le Domaine Courbis". Help in these beginnings by Maurice Courbis for the purchase of vines and Joël Durand for the vinification. He will first recover the vines of his grandfather André who is a few kilometers from Tournon. Then now, he works 6 hectares of vines without weed killer on several appellations, the main one being Saint Joseph. Since the creation of the estate, its philosophy has been to produce more sustainably and in a reasoned way.
Resulting from a plot selection on the slopes of Vion. The twenty-something-year-old vines are planted on hillsides with granite soil.

Vinification and aging
Harvested by hand, 100% whole harvest, aging on fine lees and in barrels for 10 months.
Beautiful straw yellow color with limpid reflections.
A frank and complex bouquet with notes of white flowers and a salivating mineral touch.
A wine with finesse and a structure that coats the palate. We find the notes of white flower and a nice salinity at the end of the mouth.
