Maison J. Denuziere has its origins in 1876, when Joanny Paret began delivering Condrieu wines by wagonload to customers in the surrounding villages. After a sale in the early 2000's, the focus was changed from negociant work to wine production and towards becoming a full-fledged Domaine. Today, the Domaine's own vineyards are sustainably-farmed as Denuziere moves its production further towards environmentally sound practices, and produces critically-acclaimed and compelling Northern Rhone wines. Primarily Syrah (80%) with a splash of Grenache (20%), the bouquet is a big affair with deeply set black fruits and complementary hints of oak and tar. An exciting balance of fruit and ripe tannin.
