About Domaine Monier Perreol

Domaine Monier Perreol, nestled in the Northern Rhône region of Saint Joseph, is a collaboration between two winegrowers, Jean-Pierre Monier and Philippe Perréol. Each brings their personal touch to their vineyard practices and winemaking, resulting in an elegant portfolio of wines known for their pure expressions of the terroir. With a total of five hectares, their higher-altitude vineyards lie in Brunieux, a hamlet above St-Désirat. They are farmed biodynamically, a practice certified in 2006, following the philosophy of Maria Thun. This method, coupled with a clear respect for the land, which also nurtures apricot orchards, contributes to the quality of their small-production wines.

Recognized as part of the STGT (Soil to Glass Transfer) category by Northern Rhône expert John Livingstone-Learmonth, the Domaine embodies the principles of transparency and authenticity in winemaking. The whites undergo malolactic fermentation and age in stainless steel tanks from 4 months to a year, depending on the vintage. Red grapes, on the other hand, are entirely de-stemmed and fermented in temperature-controlled cement cuves, with wines aging for a year in tonneaux. A special cuvée, Saint Joseph Laliefine, experiences the most lees contact and ages for three months before bottling.

Since 2008, Jean-Pierre and Philippe joined forces, combining their skills and resources to meet increasing market demands. Their joint venture now produces three labels: Domaine Monier, Domaine Perréol, and Domaine Monier-Perréol. Their Syrah, in particular, expresses rich, elegant profiles with balanced tannins and vivid aromatics, a testament to the high-quality fruits from their decomposed granite and limestone soils and a true reflection of the Northern Rhône terroir.

The commitment to biodynamic practices, natural vinifications with minimal sulfur, and strict quality standards all make Domaine Monier Perreol wines beautiful and fresh and a genuine embodiment of the land from which they originate. Despite the challenges, the joy and purity in their winemaking make each bottle a remarkable expression of the Northern Rhône.
