used for Offerus are located in
two distinct St. Joseph areas. The
communities of Mauves, Tournon, and
St. Jean de Muzols yield over 80%
of the blend and are owned by JeanLouis.
These southern vineyard sites
express tightly wound tannins, spice,
and power. They add structure and
depth to complete the harmony of
Offerus. The remaining vineyards are
located in more northerly communities
around Serrières, and even these
are farmed mainly by Jean-Louis,
though he doesn’t own the vineyards.
This soil produces wines which are
more elegant with incredible purity,
definition, and focus.
