Domaine des Amphores are a family owned winery, based in Saint Joseph in the Northern Rhone. Veronique and Philippe Grenier inherited 0.5ha of vineyard from Philippe’s grandfather in 1992. Since then, they have grown and expanded their plantings and became biodynamic & organically certified since 2002.
Les 7 Lieux Saint Joseph is a great wine, made from 100% Syrah grapes harvested from 50 year old vines around Chavanay and aged for 12 months in oak barrels.
Medium bodied, with plenty of concentration but no heaviness, fine and grippy tannins frame lavender and violet notes, fresh raspberry and spices. Pair with the finer cuts of lamb or beef, or rich noodle soups like tonkatsu ramen.
