Famille De Boel France Saint-Joseph ‘Rue des Poulies’ Blanc


An exciting new producer at Vine Arts! Famille de Boel France is a small family estate owned by Nelly France and Arnaud De Boel. Nelly, who is originally from Brittany, met Arnaud (who is Belgian) when they were working in New Zealand in 2009. Interested in biodynamic farming and winemaking, the couple decided to purchase vineyards in the Northern Rhône. In addition to holdings in Cornas and Saint Joseph, the couple also own some land in the Southern Rhône close to the villages of Suze-la-Rousse and Sainte-Cécile-les-Vignes. Together Nelly and Arnaud craft honest and food-friendly wines meant to be shared with family and friends.

The 2020 ‘Rue de Poulies’ Saint Joseph Blanc is the first official vintage for the winery’s St. Jo Blanc. Coming from a small parcel of fruit located in the St. Jean de Muzols area of Saint Joseph, this white is a 50/50 blend of Marsanne and Roussanne. The wine is racked 3 times in total before bottling, once after the pressing, once after the natural fermentation is complete, and once before bottling. Aging with the lees, and then some added time aging in bottle gives extraordinary texture and nuance to the final wine. Aromas of honeysuckle, yellow pear, almond, and stone unfold from the glass with a barrage of depth; young and primary, yet quite deep and complex. In the mouth there is freshness, like mountain mist, but thick with the nuance that the nose gave hints of, riddled with fully ripe stone fruits, clean acidity, and a long mineral driven finish.
