"Organic. Crêt Louison is a lieu dit located entirely within the AOC of St. Joseph. This single vineyard wine was planted in 2007, and while Aurélien considers it to be one of his best terroirs, it was never classified AOC Saint-Joseph because the owner had not planted vines there and was unable to request the appellation later. The DNA of the wine, however, is pure St. Joseph. The parcel is only 0.23 ha that sits on granite soils. Hand-harvested, destemmed, and fermented with native yeast. Very gentle punchdowns to limit extraction. Ageing in neutral oak for 12-15 months. Bottled without fining/filtering." -Supplier notes
