Francois Villard Saint Joseph Poivre et Sol

Made from Syrah vines with an average age of 20 years, then matured in old oak barrels for 18 months to produce a wine which is medium bodied, with a vibrant acidity, fine tannins and an abundance of red berry notes, including fresh raspberries, redcurrants and cranberries. Cracked black pepper spice lingers teasingly on the finish.

Behind the bottle: Francois Villard

François Villard is a self-taught winemaker; his father, a smallholder growing cereals in the Isère, did not even drink wine! However, François has a close friendship with Yves Cuilleron, from whom he learned a great deal. “I had been fired by an enthusiasm for wine since I was 20”. François planted his first vines in 1989. He became a full-time vigneron in 1991 and built his own winery in 1997. His total production is approximately 250,000 bottles, covering almost 30 cuvées in a variety of appellations: Vin de France (white, red, rosé and Moëlleux), Saint Péray, St Joseph Rouge and Blanc, Condrieu and Côte Rôtie. François owns about 30 hectares of vines in all, as well as buying in some grapes for a few cuvées as part of his négoce operation.

As far as his viticultural approach is concerned, he does not use any pesticides and only uses very light herbicide treatments if it proves to be absolutely necessary. He aims to reduce treatments to zero when and where possible, but not at the price of quality and flavour. All the grapes are hand-harvested. François is not shy of having a little botrytis on his white grapes, be they Marsanne for his Saint Joseph or Viognier for his Condrieu. For him botrytis brings complexity. His wines can be found on the tables of most of the best restaurants around the world!
