Jean David

Domaine Jean David is a small domain in Seguret of Côtes du Rhône. When Jean David first turned his hands towards being a vigneron, he spoke to his father about the benefits of organic faming. His father, however, wasn't so sure but after some persuasion allowed Jean David to have 5 of his 17 ha as a test patch. That was in the 70's and the rest is history. Jean David's father permitted him more and more hectares until the entire domain was certified organic by Ecocert ('87), allowing Jean David the freedom to progress with his philosophy. Along with the usual suspects Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan, Jean David also plants local variety Counois which makes up for up to 20% of his red blends. In his cellar, the wines are naturally unfiltered, unfined and aged in stainless steel or concrete to avoid any influence for oak. His cuvée Beau Nez contains zero S02.
