Domaine de Monteillet St Joseph Blanc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Domaine du Monteillet is situated high on the plateau above the village of Chavannay. Since taking over from his father, Stephane has transformed the standard of wine-making at Domaine du Monteillet. The Saint-Joseph Blanc, never a commercial wine, is 100% Marsanne with typical mango flavours, almond blossom and beeswax and his Condrieu, produced in tiny quantities (from 1.5 hectares of vines grown on Chanson and Boissey) is exceptional. (Le petit Dieu, Robert Parker, awarded this wine ***** in his recent book on the Rhone). To get the best out of it, try serving it cool cellar temperature and decanting it and see how the aromas develop magically in the glass.
