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.

Of course she starred; she...

Grenache / Garnacha

Grenache / Garnacha 

Grenache grows well in hot, dry regions, though it can develop very high (15 degrees+) alcohol.

As such it is grown principally in Southern France and Spain (as Garnacha). It is usually blended with other varieties in the Southern Rhône and Languedoc (Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsaut and others).

Its flavour usually encompasses the...

We get super excited when Jancis Robinson (or one of her team) write about our wine!

She writes daily for JancisRobinson.com and weekly for the Financial Times. She is founder-editor of The Oxford Companion...

Domaine du Joncier, l'O, Cotes du Rhone, 2019

L'O not for water but purity in this unoaked, organically and biodynamically farmed and hand-harvested Grenache from 45 year old vines. Interestingly perfumed with notes of blackberry jam. Now-2022

"Full bottle 1,148 g. Back label urges us to play boules, toast at the bar, enjoy this Grenache that does a pirouette. Unoaked, organically and biodynamically farmed and hand-harvested Grenache from 45-year-old vines.
Transparent crimson. Light, rather simple nose. A bit of carbonic maceration? Spicy finish. Tastes very 'Paris wine bar' to me. Dry, rather sudden finish and lots of emphasis on the fruity front palate. Deliberately glou-glou, so made (well) for a certain sort of drinker who will adore this." 16.5/20 Drink 2021–2023, Jancis Robinson, October 2021

Excellent wines sourced and chosen by the founder/wine expert, Simon Taylor. We were one of Stone Vine & Sun's very first clients and always buy from them. First-class knowledge and service.
