Michelas St Gemms

Michelas St Jemms is located in the Northern Rhone Valley with 50 hectares of vineyards divided into plots across Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Cornas. They believe the secret to their great wines comes from a calcareous terroir, with quartzite pebbles and granitic crystalline.

The area is split into 2 parts that make very different wines; The Northern Rhone and the Southern Rhone, both parts are affected by the strong cold wind known as the mistral that blows intermittently throughout the region keeping the vineyards clear of mold, mildew, pests and frosts but sometimes causing damage to the vines. The Northern Rhone is smaller and has a continental climate with warm days and cool nights. The best vineyards are situated on the steep river banks of the Rhone river and produce complex, age worthy, terroir driven wines from single varietal Syrah. The most notable wines come from Cote Rotie, Hermitage and Cornas. Although the production is mostly red wine, there is excellent single varietal Viognier (Condrieu) produced as well as Marsanne and Roussanne blends. The Southern Rhone is vastly different, the valley flattens out and there is a huge range of terroir producing a range of different styles. The climate is hot and dry which yields ripe, fruit driven wines. There are numerous wines produced under various appellations from simple Cotes du Rhone (The grapes can come from anywhere in the Rhone) which is medium bodied wine with red fruit and spice character, Cotes du Rhone Villages which has a higher level of concentration and complexity. The 9 Cru Villages produce the best quality wines in the Southern Rhone, the most famous of these villages are Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas and Vacqueyras which are rich and full bodied with high alcohol levels. Several grape varieties are permitted and the wines are mostly blends that are dominated by Grenache with Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault playing supporting roles. A small percentage of white wine is produced from Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier and Clairette.

Northern Rhone

Located in the vast Rhone Valley wine region, the northern Rhone is a famous French wine producing region whose northern point is just below the city of Lyon, and southern point around the town of Valence. Separated from the more prolific southern Rhone by the 45th parallel (and a gap of about 40 kilometres) the northern Rhone is responsible for less than 10 percent of the greater Rhone Valley output, but most of the focus is on premium quality wines. Wine made in the northern Rhone is typically red and almost exclusively produced from Syrah. Even though the output is small the three white wine varieties of the northern Rhone, Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne, all play a part, either on their own or as a minor blending component in the Syrah. Historically the appellations of Saint-Joseph, Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and Cote-Rotie make the most highly regarded red wines of the northern Rhone, while Condrieu is a distinctive white wine appellation, making both sweet and dry wines from Viognier.

Northern Rhone Red Blend

Syrah is the only red grape variety permitted in red AOC wines from the Northern Rhone. Uniquely, Syrah is often blended with white grape varieties: Viognier, Marsanne and Rousanne, which add soft, round characters to the final wine. Syrah will always be the dominant partner in any Northern Rhone red, with typically no more than 15% made up of permitted white wine.
