If you’re a fan of silky Northern Rhône Syrahs like Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage, this deliciously affordable wine is for you. With first class winemaking from Saint-Joseph experts Cave Saint Desirat, it has lots of characteristic Northern Rhône black pepper spice and savoury complexity. But it actually comes from vineyards just outside Saint-Joseph, hence the great price.
“Certainly one of the great vintages” (Jancis Robinson MW)
Winemaker Jean-Luc Chaleat applies the same winemaking techniques as he does to his celebrated Saint-Josephs which is grown just next-door
The grapes were carefully selected and hand-picked from vines grown on classic Northern Rhône granite soils where Syrah excels
Tasting note:Brilliant dark red ruby with unmistakable Rhone aromas of spices and red fruits. Powerful and lively with hints of spice, pepper and savoury character from the granite soil alongside juicy, fresh bramble fruits. Superb value.
