Pierre Jean Villa Saint Joseph "Préface"
Pierre Jean Villa
From the importer:
This is the first red cuvée of the domain, a wine with a terrific core of Syrah fruit, and it sets the tone (hence its name).
At roughly 12,000 bottles, it’s the largest production. The vines grow in the northern, cooler sector of the appellation, the wine is made in a mixture of 225-liter and 600-liter barrels, all older, and the élevage goes for 12-13 months (which will probably increase in the years ahead).
