I will defend forever the granitic terroirs of Saint Joseph which match perfectly with the ancient Serines sélections massales. Those two had to meet once in the right place, under the right climate, to go for a great adventure together. This year was cool and gave wines with freshness carrying a classical style. It was ripe, with significant sweetness. There is no austerity in this wine. The Serines express on a very precise way in such a cool year and the aromas are well shown because "the acidity shows off" as my great uncle Albert would say. This phenomenon can be shown on the white wines. The bottling was done earlier than usual in order to keep this great fruit full of finesse. I imagine this wine with a piece of veal with morels, or with stuffed quails. Such pleasures given by granitic rocks combined with very small grapes: isn't it a great story? Jasmine, bergamot orange, blond tobacco, roasted bread."
Sleek and ripe for the vintage, featuring tangy damson plum, fig and boysenberry fruit laced with vibrant minerality, backed by a long, sanguine finish. Drink now through 2012. 250 cases imported.
