Saint-Joseph Terre Neuve, Domaine Lionnet - 2022

  • Provenance: Northern Côtes du Rhône
  • Appellation: St-Joseph
  • Domain: Lionnet, Terre Brûlée

  • On-call time: 15 years

Ludovic and Corinne own just under a hectare of Saint-Joseph in the village of Châteaubourg, the southernmost in the appellation, opposite Cornas. Half of their cuvée is produced from a fairly young plot; the other half was planted in the 1950s. Both are planted on clay-limestone soils with a high proportion of pebbles. The result is a dark, full-bodied Saint-Joseph that is spicy, firmly structured and captivating in its intensity!

The estate is certified organic by Ecocert. The vines for this cuvée are located in the commune of Chateaubourg, at the southern end of the appellation, opposite Cornas. The vineyard was planted in 2008 on a clay-limestone terroir at an altitude of 300 metres, on long, east-facing terraces at a place called "Giraud" or "les côtes".


The grapes are hand-picked and kept whole for fermentation. Fermentation was carried out using only indigenous yeasts, in stainless steel vats. Maceration lasted 21 days, with pumping over during the first few days, followed by daily crushing. The estate does not use any oenological additives, even so-called natural additives, with the exception of sulphur. Aged in demi muids for 14 months. In the same spirit, no filtration or fining is carried out. Racking and bottling are carried out according to the lunar calendar.

Until the middle of the year 2000, there were two Lionnet estates in the commune of Cornas: the Rochepertuis estate, belonging to Jean Lionnet, which no longer exists; and the one called "Terre Brûlée" (Celtic for "burnt earth"), which is discussed here. The Lionnet family has owned vines since 1575. Generations of winegrowers and winemakers have followed one another, up to Pierre Lionnet. Unfortunately, however, he suffered from health problems in the early 2000s and was forced to hand over the reins of the business to his daughter Corinne and son-in-law Ludovic Izerable. The couple took over with the 2001 vintage, following his advice, and the official and complete takeover will be with the 2003 vintage. Over the years and under Pierre's leadership, the estate has decreased in volume, abandoning the most expensive parcels to work or those not retained during the division of the Cornas AOC. Thus, if the grandfather owned five hectares, at the time of Ludovic and Corinne's arrival, the property had only two. After the death of Pierre Lionnet, they banned the use of synthetic products. At the beginning, they planted grass in their vineyards, but the yields fell seriously, even excessively for certain plots. Thus, little by little, they moved towards a less "submissive" organic culture, integrating soil work that allows the vine to be more balanced in its vegetative cycle. With...
