The vineyards used for Offerus are located in two distinct St. Joseph areas. The communities of Mauves, Tournon, and St. Jean de Muzols yield over 80% of the blend and are owned by JeanLouis. These southern vineyard sites express tightly wound tannins, spice, and power. They add structure and depth to complete the harmony of Offerus. The remaining vineyards are located in more northerly communities around Serrières, and even these are farmed mainly by Jean-Louis, though he doesn't own the vineyards. This soil produces wines which are more elegant with incredible purity, definition, and focus.

This is lively, with bright black cherry and blackberry coulis flavors racing along, lined with a fresh sanguine note and backed by a minerally edge on the finish. A flash of bay leaf in the background adds range. Drink now through 2030. 3,100 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.

The 2018 Saint Joseph Offerus is similarly purple/ruby-hued and has a tighter, more mineral-drive style compared to the Crozes, which is exactly what you would expect between these two appellations. Beautiful blue fruits, violets, flowers, and wet granite-like notes give way to a medium-bodied, vibrant, nicely concentrated Saint Joseph that shines for its balance, purity, and length. It will keep for a decade, although there's no need to delay gratification.
