DOMAINE BOISSONNET

Serrieres, Northern Rhone

The Boissonnet family has been in the town of Serrieres in the district of Ardeche since the 17th century. The family house and the underground cellars date back to the year 1600. The first cellar was restored by André Boissonnet, and the second cellar was found by accident in the 1990's by his son Frederic, who is the current winemaker.

The vineyard estate is located in the center of the village of Serrières in the north of the Rhone Valley. The XVII house hides vaulted cellars, restored with dedication, in which the Saint Joseph and Condrieu are aged. On the steep hillsides that peer down over the Rhone, the domaine manages 30 acres with full respect of the land and the control of yields (leaf thinning, green harvesting), achieving the perfect ripeness for ultimate quality.

Frederic uses both cellars as an ideal place for aging their production of Saint-Joseph and Condrieu. 1990 was an outstanding vintage as well as a turning point in the life of the domaine, which at the time was only comprised of five acres of red Saint Joseph: Frederic vinified his first cuvees as he took over the domaine that year. The domaine grew to 22 acres with Saint Joseph white in 1994 and Condrieu in 1995.
