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! 

Aubac is from two nearby vineyards that Joé is leasing; it's a 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah. The Grenache is from 70 year old vines in Fontanès, and the Syrah from 20 year old vines in St Comes et Maruejols. Both vineyards are farmed organically and are grown on limestone and clay soils. The Grenache was destemmed and the Syrah was kept as whole bunches, and the cuvée was aged in 1/3rd aged French oak barriques and 2/3rd in stainless steel. Of the three cuvées from Joé this is definitely his 'top wine if you will - dense, dark blue-blackberry fruits, spice and with amazing sinewy tannins too.
