Stéphane Robert began building Domaine du Tunnel in 1994, aged just 24, and has turned it into a North Rhône quality powerhouse thanks to deep, structured reds from often-overlooked pockets of the Rhône such as this superb Saint Joseph.Despite starting at a young age, Stéphane has determinedly stuck to North Rhône principles of letting the fruit do the talking, rather than overwhelming it with new oak Grapes for this are sourced from just 2.5 hectares of 40-year-old vines around the Saint Joseph appellation2016 was the second successive year of exemplary quality in the North Rhône. “Heads you win, tails you win,” said Vinous. Dark berry and cherry aromas are offset by deliciously savoury black olive and liquorice. More blackberries on the palate, with a seductive smokiness that lingers alongside the fruit over a long finish. Already drinking well.
