Winemaker's Notes:

This wine originates from a monopoly of the best terroirs adjoining what were previously the Jean-Louis Grippat and Vallouit estates. This is a unique expression of the most impressive and exclusive slopes of the Saint-Joseph appellation.

Tasting Notes:

Eye: Deep red. Nose : Complex with dominant black fruit and delicate oak aromas. A pure and intense nose. Palate: A powerful attack. Powerful, round and elegant tannins Overall: Originating from a geological formation similar to the famous Bessards slopes in Hermitage, this Saint-Joseph has all the finess of the appellation and the strength of its neighbour accross the river.
