Joé Chandellier is our most recent find from abroad; a young sole vigneron (grape grower & winemaker) based in Souvignargues (Cévennes part of Languedoc in the South of France). 

Joé ("Jo-ey") worked under the guidance of Alain Allier at Domaine Mouressipe before going alone in 2019 meaning this is his very first vintage! We were fortunate enough to try these wines more than six months ago and immediately knew they would have a fit here in New Zealand. They are refined and incredibly well-made; he quite clearly knows what he is doing! 

Le Ribieral is from organically grown Grenache and Carignan. Grenache makes up 60% of the cuvée, and is from 20 year old vines, while the Carignan is the balance at 40% and is from 50 year old vines. The vineyard is planted on sandy loam on sandstone soils, which imparts real aromatics and depth to the wines. And the winemaking is kept very simple; whole bunch fermentation (some carbonic maceration), then 1/3rd aged in aged French oak barriques and 2/3rd aged in stainless steel tank. Unfiltered and unfined. Minimal sulphites added at bottling.
