Saint Joseph Saint Etienne 2019
AOP Saint Joseph Red
Tasting“In the same ballpark as the 2018, the 2019 Saint Joseph Saint Etienne is beautiful, offering lots of red and black berry fruits, spring flowers, and spicy, peppery aromatics, medium to full body, polished tannins, and a great texture. Count me impressed. I suspect both the 2018 and 2019 will be the best versions of this cuvée to date.” Jeb Dunnuck – 19 Nov. 2020
Food & wine pairingsThis Saint-Joseph pairs nicely with grilled or roasted meats (rib of beef), or pigeon with peas.
In the northern Rhône Valley, the clippers came out around the 20th of September. Following a rather warm start to the spring, temperatures dropped and remained below seasonal averages until the beginning of summer. The vines then faced high temperatures in July and August. Thankfully, rain arrived at the beginning of the harvests, ensuring both quantity and quality for all of our appellations.
