JF Jacouton, St Joseph, Pierres d'Iserand 2019/2020
50% of the wine is aged in barrels.
Aromatic floral and fruit scents with a smooth palate.
Fans of full bodied and rich Syrah wines pass on by, here we are talking of delicate tannins dressed in elegance.
“As with Jean-Francois’s lovely Viognier IGP listed above, so too here with his refined, restrained St Joseph. Not a wine of huge imposition but rather one of elegance, structure and balance. Plenty of dark spiced blackberry and tar on the bouquet accentuates the wine’s origins with confidence and authenticity. No excess just wonderfully neat and true. The firm, youthful tannins provide a perfect frame for the intensity of the dark, mineral fruit.” Neil Sommerfelt Master of Wines

Grandson of a local winegrower, Jean-Francois founded this small five-hectares Domaine in 2010 in Vion in the North of Tournon. He has just been joined by his son.
The steep, terraced vineyards need a lot of hard work, necessitating everything to be done by hand, as tractors and machines can’t get anywhere near. The view on the Rhone river valley from these granite stony hills is breath taking. Sun, stone and Rhône combine to produce ripe fruits with a lot of minerality, fragrance and freshness. A small family producer passionate about his terroir and his native land, Jean-Francois ticks all the boxes to join Wine Story’s team.
