Wine Details

Saint-Joseph Le Clos 2019 6x75cl

AOP Saint-Joseph
  • 75cl bottle

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.

Vineyards

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.

Vintage

An impressive Rhone vintage, with wines of impeccable balance. High temperatures proved a challenge for growers in the northern Rhone but some rain later in the season allowed for freshness to come through.

Winemaking

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).
