En Primeur Saint Jospeh Reflet Francois Villard will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Francois Villard was previously a chef but changed course to winemaking, planting his first vines in Condrieu in 1989. Since then he has become a star of the Northern Rhône, crafting wines of great complexity and intensity with a potential to cellar extremely successfully.
Vinified largely using whole clusters and aged in oak barrels, a small proportion of which are new. It’s full-bodied yet crisp and vibrant, with pungent peppery aromas, fruit flavours of raspberries and black cherries and an open-knit, approachable feel that turns silkier on the long finish.
