The Saint-Joseph appellation extends around fifty kilometres on the right bank of the River Rhone, from Chavanay in the north to Guilherand-Granges, near Valence, in the south. The mainly-east facing vineyards are planted on the steep slopes of gneiss and local granite schist, occasionally coated with lenses of loess. This variety of substrates enables us to combine complexity, volume and tautness in our Deschants wine.
The wine is vinified in open concrete tank with one or two daily pumping over. Vatting lasts between 3 and 4 weeks.
The wine is mainly aged in vats with a part of oak casks from 12 to 18 months.
