    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aged for twelve months: 20% in new oak – 40% in one year old barrels - 40 % in two and three years old barrels.

    Because our harvest finished in October, we managed to get a good ripening level, which was not always easy in the northern Rhone. Austerity is my ennemy for St Joseph winemaking! The malolactic fermentations went well through springtime, which allowed us to run a good work in barrels. Nice structure, round tannins: it develops diverse aromatic dimensions. These various dimensions fight or combine, depending on the stage. Jasmin, rose, blackberry, wood coal. Bottled without any filtration.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Briary in feel, with a mix of red cherry, black currant and blackberry fruit backed by cassis bush, sweet tobacco and mineral notes. There's a nice underlying juicy edge on the finish, where a perfumy hint of black tea chimes in. Drink now through 2012.
