M. Chapoutier St. Joseph les Granits Premier 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"From granite soils, the appropriately named 2010 St.-Joseph Les Granits has an opaque purple color and gorgeous, dense notes of sweet black cherries with hints of crushed rock, graphite, pen ink and blackberry liqueur. The granite mineral terroir characteristics come through in this wine, which is full and rich...91-94" WA 12/11 "Vivid purple. An intensely fragrant nose features dark berry preserves, violet, cola and candied licorice. Juicy and perfumed in the mouth, with a velvety touch to the intense blackberry and floral pastille flavors. Youthfully vibrant wine, with zesty acidity adding bite to an impressively long, sappy, floral-accented finish...92-94" IWC 3/12

M. Chapoutier:
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.

Very solid and savoury on the nose. Wonderfully ripe and opulent. Fresh and open. Really very gorgeous. Real lift. Surprisingly open. Blend of roast beef and dry chocolate! Hugely rewarding. 18/20 Jancis Robinson.

Dark purple. Smoky blackberry and blueberry on the highly perfumed nose with sexy oak spice and floral notes adding complexity. Densely packed dark berry preserve flavors pick up a candied licorice quality with air along with hints of smoky bacon and black tea. Coats the palate without coming off as heavy finishing with firm mineral cut and slow-building tannins. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Glass-staining purple. Sexy smoke- and spice-accented aromas of dark berry compote cola and vanilla. Stains the palate with intense blackberry and blueberry flavors that show excellent clarity and energy. Fine-grained tannins come on late and are quickly absorbed by the wine s vibrant fruit. Sweet and precise on the finish leaving behind a strong note of blue fruit. A fruit-driven wine that should be delicious soon after release. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Inky purple. A heady exotically perfumed bouquet displays scents of blackberry liqueur cherry-cola Indian spices and potpourri. Shows excellent clarity and depth in the mouth offering potent black and blue fruit flavors and suggestions of spicecake and candied flowers. Finishes sweet smoky and extremely long with silky tannins adding grip. This wine transcends its vintage. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
