Laurent Betton

Laurent Betton’s St. Joseph is classically pure, traditional Northern Rhone Syrah.

Having studied with some of the most prestigious growers in the area, including Jean-Michel Gerin of Cote Rotie, Betton created his domaine in 1988. Today he owns 3.9 hectares total, 2.2 in St-Joseph (planted in 1990) and the remainder in Condrieu (planted in 1988). His vines are mostly in Chavanay, and he harvests everything by hand.
