‘Rue de Poulies’ Saint Joseph is a stunning example of how complex, deep, and lovely wines from this region can be.  Being a mono-varietal Syrah and not a blend, this mix of estate fruit is from both the commune of St. Jean de Muzols (young vines) and Tournon (a vineyard of about fifty years). Each year is harvested by hand when the perfect balance of pH and sugar development is found in the grapes.  The grapes are fermented in stainless steel and see regular punch downs for the first week, and then gentle pump overs until complete. Half of the wine remains in tank, and the other half is placed into old French barrique for about a year until it is bottled. The result shows classic black and red fruits on the nose, as well as pork fat and peppercorns, while the palate follows with a deep core of minerality, ripe and fresh fruit, and is lined with spicy acidity.

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.
