Domaine Habrard Saint-Joseph 2019
WineSpark Price €27.99
Laurent tells me the vineyard is owned by a guy who used to work for Renault - and when he passed it to his son, it fell into disrepair. Laurent got the opportunity to work with the grapes in 2012, and gradually restored the vineyard to its former greatness.
He only makes 1,500 bottles - and gives the vineyard owner a quarter of them as payment for the grapes!
This is signature smoky, peppery and savoury Syrah from a master craftsman. Matt Walls in Decanter called this ‘effortlessly lovely’ - which is a great way to put it.
We’re thrilled to get our hands on a few cases, and can’t wait to hear what you think.

Laurent Habrard describes himself as ‘the happy winemaker’ and when you speak to him, it’s hard not to get caught up in his positivity and good energy.

My wife and I are now together after our children have moved on. We tasted this wine as one of our sons was visiting us. We had it with Dunnes’ PorkSteak. It made the night perfect.
