A beautifully positioned property overlooking the Rhône to the north of Chavanay, Domaine des Amphores has been under the current ownership of Philippe & Véronique Grenier since 1994.
The majority of the eight hectares of vineyards lie towards the top of the valley where the Saint Joseph and Condrieu appellations are intertwined. The entire estate is farmed organically and methods are traditional; hand-harvesting, wild yeasts, and old oak preferred to new. Extraction is gentle, with a basket press frequently used; the resulting reds are perfumed and elegant.
In 2017, spring frost reduced the crop but the magnificent summer weather ensured an early harvest in the first half of September and a splendid range of dense, rich, concentrated wines.

"From two parcels of vines on granite soils but just outside the Saint Joseph appellation and therefore only qualifying for Vin de Pays status. Unoaked, this is wonderfully aromatic with splendid plum and cherry fruit. A delicious, medium-bodied wine with supple tannins and a ripe, succulent texture. Drink 2019-2021."
Charles Taylor MW March 2019
