100% Viognier at 350 meters of altitude
50% of the wine is aged 8 months in barrels on its fine lies.
The granite soil (hence the name of the Cuvée), brings a mineral coolness to this wine which takes from its IGP appellation “vin de Pays” only the name. For sure it’s a great wine in the same league as many Condrieu.
Jancis Robinson: "Banana ice-cream and pineapple with a sweet musky character - overdelivers on the nose. Lovely buttery notes on the palate, buffed and polished to a perfectly round mouthfeel. Lighter than many Rhône Viogniers, but no dilution of flavour. Expertly done - very good." 17 points

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.
