J. Denuziere

Excellence of an ancient domain in the Rhone Valley
Region Valle del Rodano (Francia)
Foundation Year 1876
Address 73 Rue Nationale - 69420 - Condrieu (Francia)

Maison J.Denuzière is an ancient domaine in the Rhone Valley, present in Condrieu since 1876. It has been cultivating vines in one of the most vocated territories in France for several generations. The Maison was founded by Joanny Paret, who began marketing his wines in local restaurants and bistros. Over the following decades, the Maison grew by expanding its vineyard and making its production known nationally and internationally. The domaine has managed to retain a family character and today represents an important reality in the area, with vineyards in some of the most important Appellations in the Vallée du Rhone: Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Peray, Saint-Joseph, Condrieu, Cornas, and Côte-Rôtie.

In the Rhone Valley, vine cultivation has ancient origins. Around 600 B.C. Greek settlers from Phocaea founded the colony of Marseille, and the culture of viticulture spread from the coastal area inland. The invasion of Gaul by Roman legions then led to the creation of a large vineyard in the northern part of the Valley. The wines produced in the Vienne area were already famous at the time for their excellent quality. The tradition has been preserved over the centuries thanks to the work of the Monasteries, right up to the present day. The climate is mild and sunny, always very breezy thanks to the constant presence of the Mistral which blows from the northwest and the Mediterranean breezes that come up from the south. The soils are composed of granite and schist rocks, with the presence of alluvial terraces rich in pebbles.

The estate is managed with great attention to the specific characteristics of each plot. In-depth knowledge of the area enables us to enhance the characteristics of each vineyard to produce wines with a typically territorial character. Harvesting is carried out by hand, so that perfectly ripe, healthy grapes arrive at the winery. Vinification is carried out in whole bunches, without destemming and with very delicate extractions. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, and aging takes place in steel tanks or French oak barrels.
