Saint-Joseph Le Clos 2017
A beautifully mineral nose with graphite, cherry and blackberry notes. The palate is soft, rich and elegant with a long-lingering finish and aromatic notes reminiscent of the granite terroir.
Brown soils derived from coarse-grained, black mica granite, fractured and locally altered. The bunches are cut then transported to the winery in small crates.
This year was full of surprises and will remain ingrained in our memories due to its unpredictable weather! It was a true winemakers’ vintage and the month of September made it what it is. The northern reds show a classic and pure style, with exceptional potential.
Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in a small, 30 HL, concrete vat with long maceration for around 5 weeks. Entirely in barrels for around 20 months period (25% new barrels).
