Vinification & Ageing: The harvest is 100% by hand, it is sorted in the vineyard before entering the cellar, which is located in the heart of Condrieu. The winemaking methods are gentle and natural, they combine tradition and modernity. The method focuses on listening to the wine and following closely its evolution. Whether in wooden or stainless-steel vats, the alcoholic fermentation of the grapes is monitored daily and adapted to each specificity of the northern terroirs to extract the best juice. Ageing then continues in vats or in barrels for several months

Tasting Notes: Dark colour with purple hues. Elegant and complex nose with ripe blackcurrant, violet, spices and notes of roasted coffee beans. The palate is opulent and delicate at once, with fine tannins and fresh acidity. Layered and rich with great length.

Food Pairing: Lamb

The small family owned ‘Vins Paret’ company was founded in 1876 in Condrieu. Joanny Paret’s business delivered Condrieu wines within a 25km radius around the village on horses and his largest customer was the church. The wine was used for mass. In the 1940’s, Pierre Denuzière, Joanny’s Paret son in law, took over the company and renamed it Vins Denuzière. Under his leadership and followed by his sons Jean and Joseph, Vins Denuzière became one of the largest wine distributor in the region, supplying wine from Lyon all the way down to Valence. The Denuzière family then sold Vins Denuzière to Mr Michel Picard in 2003. Mr Picard originates from Burgundy and is a respected negociant from that region. In 2010, the business model was changed from being a wine distributor to producing wines under the estate brand name J. Denuzière. The new company changed its focuss and decided to produce high end Northern Rhône wines, under the J. Denuzière brand name. A one hectare vineyard in Condrieu and 1.5 hectares in Cornas were purchased and new partnerships with top winegrowers from other Northern Rhône appellations were also created. Samuel Montgermont and Caroline Moro arrived on the estate in 2013 and were put in charge of production. The first estate release under the J. Denuzière brand name was for the 2014 vintage with a Côte Rôtie and Condrieu.

Côte Rôtie is a prestigious red-wine appellation at the northern tip of France"s Rhône Valley wine region. The Syrah vines on its steep, south-east-facing slopes produce wines which are both powerful and elegant. Improvements in quality have led to increases in demand for the wines – a cycle which turned so consistently that Côte Rôtie wines are now some of France"s most sought-after and most expensive.

The Grape
Syrah/ Shiraz

A noble black grape variety grown particularly in the Northern Rhône where it produces the great red wines of Hermitage, Cote Rôtie and Cornas, and in Australia where it produces wines of startling depth and intensity. Reasonably low yields are a crucial factor for quality as is picking at optimum ripeness. Its heartland, Hermitage and Côte Rôtie, consists of 270 hectares of steeply vineyards producing wines that brim with pepper, spices, tar and black treacle when young. After 5-10 years they become smooth and velvety with pronounced fruit characteristics of damsons, raspberries, blackcurrants and loganberries.

It is now grown extensively in the Southern Rhône where it is blended with Grenache and Mourvèdre to produce the great red wines of Châteauneuf du Pape and Gigondas amongst others. Its spiritual home in Australia is the Barossa Valley, where there are plantings dating as far back as 1860. Australian Shiraz tends to be sweeter than its Northern Rhône counterpart and the best examples are redolent of new leather, dark chocolate, liquorice, and prunes and display a blackcurrant lusciousness.
