100% Syrah, 50% of the wine is aged in barrels.
The Cuvee Sainte-Epine in St-Jean-de-Muzols, named after the most famous plot of vine in all the Saint-Joseph red appellation, it is shared with other renowed domains such as the brothers Gonon who purchased it in the mid 2000s from the iconic retiring Raymond Trollat. After rented a small parcel (equivalent of 3 barrels) for few years Jean-Francois just purchased it with his son Hugo.
Very ripe black fruits, velvity tannins (the Jacouton signature) with a full-bodied palate. Grand vin, testimony of top French Northern Rhone Syrah.

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.
