ERWAN MASSE

LVT 2019 r 2018 wh A newcomer who has started well, a range of Saint-Joseph red, Syrah Vin de France and two whites, a Marsanne and Viognier, both Vin de France. The vineyards for these wines are at Ozon and Sarras towards the middle sector of Saint-Joseph. A native of Poitiers in the West of France, Erwan worked in Bordeaux, Saint-Chinian and the Mâconnais before settling in the Northern Rhône, where he arrived in 2013. He has roamed around finding small plots to cultivate, and is gradaully accumulating some reasonable space to work, the latest being a 0.7 hectare plot at Saint-Jean-de-Muzols, where he crowd funded the expense of finishing the planting and the wooden stakes for his Syrah.

The style is agreeably low intervention, with a genuine feel to the Saint-Joseph, and a brightly fruited Syrah. Fermentation is done with wild yeasts and no new oak is used. The Marsanne, which involves a little oak, is a little more complex than the steel vat prepared Viognier.
