Sommelier's Notes A 100% well-balanced wine and elaborated vintage. Directly from the vineyard. Exclusively on the French Cellar.
REGION: Rhône Valley
Appellation: The red wines of Saint-Joseph are made of Syrah and up to 10% Marsanne and Roussanne
Region: Rhône Valley
Estate: Located at Charnas, on the right bank of the northern Rhone valley, this family-owned property was founded in 1806. The 8 hectares of vineyard are divided between the Saint-Joseph and Condrieu appellations. For about ten years, Gilles has been modernizing the domain. He rebuilt the range, changed the labels and he is now extending his cellar. 
Grapes: 100% Syrah
Did you know?: Most of the vineyards are situated in and around the commune of Charnas -midway between Lyon and Valence- on the western banks of the Rhone. A large majority of the vineyards are set on terraces which makes most mechanization difficult, if not impossible. Thus, much of the vineyard work continues to be done by hand - but the the better of quality
Beautiful ruby red with purple reflects.
Very pleasant nose that is open and fruity. Notes of black fruit like blackcurrant, blackberry and black cherry. You may also find empyreumatic notes like smoke and some notes of milk chocolate.
The attack is marked and vibrant, the wine is round and plump. The tannins are smooth. It is a nice and well elaborated vintage. This is a very balanced wine, both delicacy and strength can be found. The finish is long, fresh and spicy.
Wine service temperature: 16°. Maturity: ready to drink, up to 6 years cellaring
Sweetbread , milk-fed lamb, beef, navarin of lamb, fine cheese selection
