ABOUT THE WINE
The Flacher family has been making wine in the northern Rhone since 1806. Gilles is now managing an estate of 7 hectares, mainly in the Saint-Joseph appellation. Their wines are all from single-vineyard sites situated in and around the commune of Charnas, on the western banks of the Rhône. The majority of the vineyards are on terraced slopes, making mechanisation impossible, and most vineyard work continues to be done by hand.

TASTING NOTES
Elegant, with a floral bouquet of white fruits, summer flowers, cooked oranges and hazelnuts. The palate is rich and supple, with a natural freshness to balance the ripe character of the fruit. The wine coats the palate, with a long, rewarding finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Great with white fish like cod or monkfish and chicken; or for a quintessentially French pairing, match this to escargot in a buttery garlic sauce.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A blend of Roussanne and Marsanne, two lesser-known white grapes native to the northern Rhône Valley. Roussanne brings the weight, and a hint of earthy character; Marsanne brings ripe fruit and floral aromas.
