Jean Baptiste Souillard Saint-Joseph 2020
The key to the wines that Jean Baptiste produce is that they all totally represent the individual terroir they come from. The varietal wines are left for 4 seasons to age in old barrel, and the crus are left for 8 seasons. All the winemaking is the same, the character and identity of the wines come directly from the terroir.
Working as a micro-negociant, Jean Baptiste buys fruit from much smaller growers that would otherwise have to sell to the local co-operative where their, far superior, fruit would be lost. All the growers work Organically, or are in conversion to do so.
These are not glouglou or light styles – this is Syrah with purpose.
We ship wine to most states with a $100 minimum order for shipping. Shipments are sent on the next Monday if weather permits. We do not ship beer and spirits.
