Vineyard Notes: Premier Quartier Saint-Joseph is a blend of multiple parcels with varied exposure on the Peyraud plateau. Plantings are from the early 1980s as well as massale selection vines from 2006-2008.
Winemaking Notes: The grapes are destemmed into concrete vats for spontaneous fermentation. Daily pump overs and foot pigéage is done. The Syrah ages in a combination of 90% old barrels and 10% neutral demi-muids for 12 months, then 3-4 months in tank before being bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with a pinch of SO2 added (about 15 mg/L).
Tasting Notes: Friendly upon release, the Ferme des Sept Lunes Premier Quartier is floral and focused with lovely textures and lift.
