Monier-Perreol-St-Joseph-Rouge-2014

Monier Perreol, St. Joseph Rouge, 2014

Jean-Pierre Monier is as happy and as grateful a vigneron as one finds. His small production wines certainly have not made him wealthy (far from it), but his effortless calm, natural sensitivity, and quiet conviction give him an enviable air of simplicity. Starting with the 2008 vintage, Jean Pierre Monier entered into a working relationship with Philippe Perréol to combine their resources in order to meet the increasing market demand. Perréol works his vines just like Monier. They currently have three labels, depending on vineyard origin and legal reporting requirements: Domaine Monier, Domaine Perréol, and Domaine Monier Perréol.
Monsieur Monier likes farming. He lives in humble splendor way up in the hills above the Rhône River surrounded by cherry, apricot, and peach orchards, grapevines he farms biodynamically, birdies singing, and bees a-buzzin’. He is living the life of a 19th-century vigneron. Monier told
me that he had it figured out: he makes about three dollars an hour in his little winery. \“But I’m so happy,\” he said. His is an almost regal
Saint-Joseph, loaded with character and luscious, juicy Syrah fruit. -Kermit Lynch
