The Garon family wine history in the Northern Rhone dates back to 1475 the year Jean, the first grape grower was born. Established in Ampuis, in the heart of Côte-Rôtie, the estate has been passed down from generation to generation. For years the grapes were sold to Guigal but that changed in the 1990's when the family began bottling and selling their stellar wines.

Today history continues to be written, and it is always together that the Garon family work the lands of their ancestors. 

The family has chosen the path of elegance in wine and they say 'A great wine is a wine that we never tire of, that we do not forget'

Most of these brand new releases have yet to be reviewed however recent vintages consistently score in the low to mid 90s from both the Wine Advocate and Vinous.

2020 Cotes du Rhone 'La Part des Vivants'

While many Cotes du Rhone are primarily Grenache, this offering from the Northern Rhone carries a large percentage of Syrah with smaller amounts of Grenache and Carignan. The wine reflects the intensity and flavours of Syrah.  Wild blackberry and plum with an undercurrent of earthiness present on the nose and carry through to a full bodied palate with chocolate and spice making an appearance on the lingering finish.

2020 Les Grand Parcel IGP Viogner

This lovely fresh Viogner exhibits some tropical notes over laying white peach and floral notes. Soft in the mouth some classic minerality backs the hint of ginger spice complimenting the fruit. The finish is long and focused.

2020 Saint Joseph Blanc

The white stars of the Northern Rhone are featured in this terroir driven wine.  Rousanne makes up 90% of  with the remaining juice coming from a small plot of Marsanne.  Aromas of sweet almond and acacia drift on the nose.  In the mouth you'll find pear and a hint of tea in this beautifully balanced wine.

2020 La Vieille Mason Condrieu

Condrieu is perhaps the world's best expression of Viogner. This wine has powerful aromas of ripe citrus and stone fruit. Honey and violet are enhanced by hints of dusty minerals and fennel as the nose opens. Juicy and concentrated in style, with pear, peach, orange and honeysuckle flavors, in the glass it shows outstanding clarity and mineral lift. The floral and mineral notes repeat on the impressive incisive finish.

2019 La Vieille Les Triotes Cote Rotie

Pungent cherry, blueberry and candied violet aromas are complemented by hints of black pepper and smoky minerals in this classic bottling. Succulent and penetrating on the palate, this wine offers concentrated black/blue fruit flavors, a touch of vanilla and a violet pastille quality that builds through the back half. It shows very good energy and spicy lift, finishing with sneaky tannins and bright, floral-driven persistence.

2019 La Vieille Les Rochins Cote Rotie

An expressive, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, cherry, licorice and olive, and a smoky mineral flourish adds energy to this beautiful wine. Fleshy and broad on the palate, it offers alluringly sweet black/blue fruit flavors that unfold slowly on the back half. Rich yet lively, the wine shows superb clarity and youthfully gripping tannins on the long, blue-fruit-driven finish.
