- 90 pts Wine & Spirits Magazine
TastingPurple, dark and shiny. The nose is very expressive with notes of black currants and pepper. The mouth is full, velvety and dominated by flavours of cherry and licorice. The finish is long and spicy.
Food & wine pairingsThis Saint-Joseph will pair nicely with grilled or roasted meats (rib of beef), matured cheese and sweet and savory dishes (pork with caramel, tagine, falafel…)
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. St Joseph is produced almost entirely from the Syrah grape, grown in light soils of schist and gneiss on granitic bedrock.
