Marine Roussel, Domaine du Joncier, Lirac, France

Years ago, when Oz Clarke mentioned to us that he was looking for entertaining French winemakers to visit for the first series of Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure, we sent him off to see Marine Roussel at Domaine du Joncier in the southern Rhône, just the other side of the river from Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Domaine du Joncier, Lirac, Regard, 2016

Mostly Syrah with Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan. Now-2023

Marine first adopted organic viticulture many years ago, then bio-dynamics, and from the 2011 vintage all her wines have been certified as both. She is absolutely confident of the benefits: she feels her vines are healthier and stronger, more resistant to disease and drought. As proof she brought in a generous crop in perfect condition in 2011, and reduced yields but excellent quality in 2012. She also thinks bio-dynamism brings more grace and elegance to her wines. 

It’s worth pointing out that the land in Lirac is by no means homogenous. Marine’s vineyards are on the best terroir, marked by the same "galets roulés" as those of Châteauneuf just across the Rhône.

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
