https://vintage59.com/our-portfolio-2/pierre_jean_villa_rhone/ From three parcels totaling five acres. About half was planted in 2009 while the other half dates from the 1970s. The young vine parcel was put in by Pierre Jean behind the original Villa winery on the hillside back of Chavanay; the two older parcels are in the commune of Vérin. About 50% of this is raised in foudre, 25% in neutral demi-muids, and 25% in clay jars. Normally, there's no fining and one minimum filtration, but this depends on the year. Pierre Jean loves the textured fruit that Condrieu amply provides and aims to couple this with lift and freshness. Production averages 1,667 6-packs.
The name comes from the poSaint-WWII days, when the terraces behind Ampuis were largely abandoned and the locals took to growing vegetable gardens on the steep hillsides. Jardin referred to vegetables, not grapes.
A land of stark contrast. North and South; syrah and grenache; plain valleys and impossible hills. Artisan wine makers and industrial wine facilities. Wines for now and wines of time and patience. Fascinating!
