Description

This superb wine made from hand-picked grapes has aromas and flavours of luscious black fruits including black cherries, underpinned by hints of spice, herbs and earthy black olives. Ageing in oak barrels, which takes place over 15 months, adds complexity.

Low yields and fermentation by indigenous yeasts results in a wine full of varietal characteristics.

Louis Vallet and his son Anthony run this small artisan Domaine. In addition to carrying on a 150-year-old family wine growing tradition on the steep slopes of Saint Joseph, the Vallets still farm cherry and apricot trees on the plateau below. They tend a combined 30 acres of vines including parcels in four distinct terroir zones around Serrières, one of Saint-Joseph’s 26 communes located in the northern part of the appellation.

Muletiers is named after the men who used to transport wine by mule-drawn wagons to the market in St Étienne.

This wine is an excellent accompaniment to red meats and game, duck and smoked meats.
