‘L’Ultime Repas’ is a spectacular display of the passion that led the de Boel-France family to the Rhone. With a sincere love for the Syrah grape, this wine is its ultimate expression from their vines in both their southern Rhone plots (Massif d’Uchaux and Ste. Cécile), and their Northern Rhone land (the vines outside their home in Collines Rhodaniennes, St. Joseph, and Cornas). A long, 2 month, natural fermentation in stainless steel took place before 40% was moved to old barrique for 8-months aging to be blended back together for bottling. With only 2 rackings, the wine was bottled in July and released in October. The result shows a spicy nose of pepper, licorice, and pork, leading to a palate of complex black fruits and also stone fruits, with a supple and velvety texture where bacon, violets, and truffle meet. Decanting is recommended, as this wine will continue to age well with its extraordinary character.

Famille de Boel France is a small family estate owned and run by an enthusiastci and inspired husband/wife team in the high elevations of Saint Joseph. This is a project born from passion, not born from inheriting vineyards or a cellar. Nelly France is from Brittany (France), Arnaud De Boel is from Belgium, and they met in 2009 in New Zealand where their love for food and wine brought them together and quickly found a love for one another. With their two young children Augustin and Margot, the family chooses biodynamic farming and winemaking, and owns vineyards in the Northern Rhone where they live (in Saint Joseph and Cornas), and some land in the Southern Rhone close to the villages of Suze-la-Rousse and Sainte-Cécile-les-Vignes. They are completely dedicated to the celebration of how food and wine come together in so many magical occasions, and strive to make wine that is meant for the table, meant to enjoy with friends and family, and meant for all of the Bon Vivants of the world; something they can pass on hopefully for generations to come.
