Food Pairings for Jean Louis Chave Selection St Joseph Blanc Celeste
It is always a joy to drink this wine. I love its purity and find it to be one of the most exciting expressions of the Northern Rhône's most impressive white grape, Roussanne, that doesn't break the bank.
The wine is so stunning, Jean Louis continues to plant more Roussanne on the unplanted granite soils of this newly acquired domaine. This white St Joseph differs from the white Hermitage in that the soil of white Hermitage (clay and limestone) gives softness and suppleness to the wine whereas the granite soil expresses a wonderful minerality which perfectly accompanies food and gives an additional sense of vivacity.
