Savoury / earthy reds - CÔTES DU RHÔNE, L’O, Domaine du Joncier. Southern Rhône

2016 CÔTES DU RHÔNE, L’O, Domaine du Joncier. Southern Rhône

Organic

Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: Domaine de L'O is based in Lirac which neighbours Tavel and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, withe the same warm climate, the famous 'galets roulés' (large stones) which give such good drainage and the same consitent presence of the 'mistral' (the warm wind)
Grape Variety: 98% Grenache, 2% Cinsault
Producer: From the website of her (excellent) US importer, Kermit Lynch:
"The feisty, vivacious Marine Roussel took her time finding her place in the family domaine. Her father, Pierre, was an agronomist and started Domaine du Joncier in 1964. However, as a young graphic artist, Marine was seeking adventure beyond her small, sleepy town in the Southern Rhône. After living in both Marseille and Paris, Marine eventually felt a strong pull to return home. She joined the domaine in 1989, and has since taken on her new vocation with the zeal that only a true artist could possess.
Marine achieved organic certification in her vineyards in 2000 and biodynamic certification in 2011. Her soils are alive with microbiotic activity, lending a hand in both the long-term sustainability of her land and in the mineral expression of her wines. Since the vines naturally achieve such low yields, Marine seeks a gentle tannin extraction, too, an important step that provides balance to the final blends."
