Jean-Louis Grippat was a master of finesse in his wines, both Saint-Joseph, where the vineyards included a rented Vignes de l'Hospice, and at Hermitage, where the vineyard included the fine white wine climat of Les Murets. He retired and made his last wine in 2000; the domaine and its stocks of wine were bought, bottled and labelled by E.Guigal. I particularly appreciated his whites. Vinfication was traditional, in large open oak vats.
