- Closure: Cork
Notes sourced from M. Chapoutier
Light acid granite ground, on the right bank of the Rhône, in the foothills of the Massif Central. We own the parcel of Saint-Joseph, situated between Mauves and Tournon, which has given its name to the appellation.
From veraison, the evolution of the maturing process is checked regularly and the grapes are hand-harvested when they are at peak maturity.
Like our Hermitage wine, our Saint-Joseph is vinified in oak casks or in steel vats with 2 daily treadings. The slightly shorter fermentation period lasts from 15 to 18 days.
Ageing in oak casks and in steel vats from 12 to 18 months.
Colour : deep garnet red due to the granite.
Nose :very floral at first, developing into liquorice, pear and spices.
Palate : supple, with a dominant of red fruits ; the finale is long, with a spicy characteristic.
