Tasting Note:

Less open and more tannic initially than the regular St Joseph. Though closed to begin with this demonstrates great fruit finesse and precision.

Good intensity without heaviness. Superb. A blend of old Syrah vines in the commune of Chavanay in the north part of St Joseph near Condrieu. Made from 85% de-stalked Syrah (15% whole bunches were included in the 2017 for the first time) and aged in 20% new oak barriques usually for 16 to 18 months.
