FRANÇOIS DUMAS

LVT 2018 r 2018 wh The unassuming François Dumas worked for Yves Cuilleron, François Villard and Jean-Louis Chave from 2004 onwards. He set off on his own adventure in 2011, and now works 1.5 hectares of Saint-Joseph Syrah and 0.8 hectare of Condrieu, with a little Vin de France from Malleval and nearby areas. He has been organic all along. There is whole bunch fermentation on the St Jo, restricted use of added SO2, and the wines have definite character, the raising 18 months for all three. The Syrah and Gamay Vin de France or IGP are of great interest, the 2018 Gamay, made from 1975-78 massale vines, a real little gem. Definitely a name to note if in the area looking for wines to buy.
