Eric Asimov writes intelligently and persuasively about the potential of St-Joseph, embodied most clearly by the Gonon brothers, in the New York Times. We are sold out of the blanc, but the 2011 rouge is still available.
Jancis Robinson also has an insightful article about two orphaned wine regions, Muscadet and Beaujolais, and recommends the delightful 2010 Terre de Pierre from Domaine Luneau-Papin. The first vintage of Terre de Pierre was 2008, and Pierre-Marie has put in a staggering amount of work into this serpentine-based (a hard, heavy rock, rare in the region). The 2010 is clean, linear, with a lot of back-palate presence. You can drink it by the glass at DB Bistro Moderne, of course.
Please contact us if you would like to purchase either of these wines.
