This wine is served with
Cook first but always fascinated by the wine, François Villard began to acquire his first lands, in spring, 1989, on the municipality of Saint Michel (place said Poncins) in naming Condrieu. These first 400 bottles will be for sale in autumn, 1992. Today, Domaine Francois Villard account 30 ha and about twenty vintages. These numerous wines are under various naming such as Condrieu, Saint Joseph, Côte-Rôtie or still Saint Peray.
Francois Villard works brilliantly the viognier but also more recently the syrah. Every vintage wine inspires him. Both in plays on words to baptize his vintages and to create it of news. Which explains the multiplication of labels (until 18!), which has enough to make get confused of cellar in the most eclectic of the oenophiles.
Domaine François Villard is managed by a master hand, as a self-taught François Villard likes the concentrated and late harvest, to seek not overmaturity but the perfect maturity. Francois Villard wants to tend more towards organic but the tillage sometimes makes the thing difficult because they are terraces very difficult to till. Domaine Villard has therefore attempted another approach and to do things differently as far as possible, so treatments and weed killers are suppressed except on certain plots that require special effort.
