The St Joseph appellation is over 50 km long, with steep, terraced vineyards stretching along the right bank of the Rhône River, between Condrieu in the north and St Peray in the south. The soils are a mix of gneiss and granite in the north and granite and feldspar in the south.
The harvest took place early in the morning to preserve primary aromas of the grapes. Optimized settling of the lees to boost aromatic potential (between 3 and 6°C) before fermentation at low temperature (12 - 14°C). The ageing in vats lasts for 6 months before bottling.
Note de dégustation:
Attractive bright, pale-straw colour with green tints. The nose is generous and shows citrus (lime) aromas. On the palate this white wine of gastronomie is balanced and structured with notes of quince jelly and a long, fresh finish.
Service & accords:
Best enjoyed in its youth to appreciate its freshness. It pairs nicely with scallop with saffron sauce, salmon "soufflé", or even with slice of eggplant caviar. Enjoy it cool between 10° to 12°C.
