Alain Paret St. Joseph Larmes du Pere 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Located in the northernmost part of the Rhône valley, 50 km south of Lyon, the vineyards of Alain Paret are southeast facing and planted on steep, uneven slopes. The soil is fairly homogeneous and is made up of schists and granite. It is shallow, light, permeable and warm. In the Pays d'Oc, north of the town of Sète, Alain Paret selected the Languedoc hillsides, similar in terms of ground and climate to his own estate, to grow his chosen grape varieties. Alain Paret created his estate in 1972. He plants Syrah and Viognier grapes for the region's typical wine productions: St Joseph and Condrieu. With 37 hectares of vineyards, he produces 1630 hectolitres of appellation wine. Over the years, he has fine-tuned his working techniques and come to offer high quality products, both in terms of appellation wines and Vin de Pays. He has received recognition in his endeavour by numerous national and international awards. This vineyard is located on the Rochecourbe hillside in the village of Malleval. This slope is known for its exceptional terroir and its ideal geographical location. It features hard soil where the roots must burrow down to feed themselves, and is perfectly drained in a place where water is scarce; this is poor soil that needs the vine to suffer and work hard to extract the very best of its prestigious aromas. Les Larmes du Père is a vineyard that saturates its red wine with noble tannins. It offers a subtle blackcurrant and raspberry nose, with leather and liquorice notes as it ages.
