A wonderfully balanced wine with an impressive body.

Inviting deep black color with beautiful brilliance. Very fine on the nose, the wine shows delicate aromas of black pepper and forest fruits. On the palate it is rich and opulent with powerful tannins perfectly complemented by a delightful freshness that comes from the minerality of the granite soil. A classy and very elegant Saint Joseph, which is still very young and should be stored for a few years until it is ready to drink.

We recommend opening the wine at best in its first three years and enjoying it with grilled meat, game dishes or a classic pigeon.

After a hot and unusually dry summer, the wines impress with their opulence, concentration and full-bodiedness. The aging process makes the wines more pleasing and balanced.

appellation:
The Saint-Joseph appellation is located between the villages of St. Pierre de Boeuf and Charvanay in the northern Rhône. For a long time, all the acreage there was owned by small local winegrowers who produced exclusively for their own use. Before them it was monks who started growing wine here centuries ago.

terroir:
The source rock of the Saint-Joseph region is mainly granitic and the layers run along the right bank of the Rhône for 40 km. For this first vintage of Saint-Joseph Rouge, the best grapes were selected from the northern locations of the appellation, which bring a lot of minerality and fruit, as well as grapes from the historic center of Saint-Joseph "Village de Mauves", which give the wine its impressive body to lend. The result is a wonderfully balanced wine.

Maison & Domaines Les Alexandrins - Northern Rhône

Maison Les Alexandrins

Three personalities from the northern Rhône Valley stand for the new company "Domaine & Maison Les Alexandrins": Nicolas Jaboulet, 6th generation of a winegrowing family that settled in Tain l'Hermitage in 1834; Guillaume Sorrel, son of Marc Sorrel from Domaine Sorrel in Hermitage and Alexandre Caso, expert in the terroirs of the North Rhone Valley.

They met in 2012 when Nicolas Jaboulet (at the head of Maison Nicolas Perrin, founded in 2007) and Guillaume Sorrel and Alexandre Caso (both founded Domaine Les Alexandrins in Mercurol in 2009) were in charge of the plot-by-plot cultivation of the Crozes-Hermitage vineyards for the wines of the Maison Nicolas Perrin launched. Their accumulated know-how has shaped the history of the northern Rhône Valley.

With a similar mindset, all three are interested in the great wines of their region and quickly had other big goals. In 2014, Alexandre and Guillaume had the desire to further advance their wines from Domaine Les Alexandrins. At the same time, Nicolas wanted to anchor his company Maison Nicolas Perrin in the heart of the northern Rhône Valley. And so it finally came to a closer cooperation.

Since 2015, Maison Nicolas Perrin has held a majority stake in Domaine Les Alexandrins, which led to the name change to "Domaine et Maison Les Alexandrins". This collaboration has both enabled Domaine Les Alexandrins to continue their dream - to produce northern Rhône Valley wines that are neoclassical in their core - and also allowed Maison Nicolas Perrin to be transformed into Maison Les Alexandrins, thus consolidating the well-known for its quality Extend the range of wines to all appellations in the northern Rhône Valley.

Nicolas Jaboulet, Guillaume Sorrel and Alexandre Caso unearth treasures here, often forgotten or old vines from exceptional terroirs that express the splendor of the appellation. The three men benefit from the skills and experience of their parents and grandparents. Therefore, they only produce wines that reflect the Crozes-Hermitage and Saint-Joseph appellations with their vines on historic terroirs in their purest form. The domaine is therefore limited in several respects: in terms of appellations (Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph) and in terms of volume.

Processing is done plot by plot. The vines are cultivated as they used to be, in the tradition of the regional winegrowers. This applies to the Syrah vines in Crozes-Hermitage that are over 70 years old, but also to the forgotten vines in Tournon (Saint-Joseph) that are over 90 years old. And every year, whether read in full or not, Domaine Les Alexandrins applies practices that are now often forgotten in the northern Rhône Valley.

Maison Les Alexandrins is the natural evolution of the previous Maison Nicolas Perrin. The company had been extraordinarily successful since 2007 and had received numerous awards. It continued to evolve in the northern Rhône Valley, relying on very experienced people and concentrating on one domaine: Domaine Les Alexandrins, in the heart of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation.

The wines of Maison Les Alexandrins therefore reflect all the work of the domaine. They are more modern in their appearance (since there is little wine from the domaine, other wines are also offered, which was not common before); They are more contemporary in their style (the aim is perfect harmony even with young wines, which offer drinking pleasure from an early age); They are more diverse when it comes to offering wines from the northern Rhône Valley (not just Crozes-Hermitage and Saint-Joseph).

This range invites wine lovers worldwide to view and appreciate the traditions of the northern Rhône Valley from a new perspective. The range consists of contemporary and timeless wines at the same time, coming from an exceptional terroir discovered by the Northern Rhône Valley terroir expert, Alexandre Caso. Eight different wines embody this revived classicism.
