Producer: Domaine Jolivet
One of the most outstanding value reds in the Northern Rhône, this is a mixture of young vines hillside St Joseph and established vines situated on the plateau that are but metres away from the St Joseph boundary. Harvest mid-October at 12.5 degrees of potential alcohol, this is a refreshing unoaked Syrah that offers crisp red berry, blackberry fruit with twist of cracked pepper. Digest and light with a very fine-boned structure. Super!
The wine has a lovely dark colour with aromas of black fruit and freshly cracked black pepper. It is beautifully structured and full-bodied, boasting concentrated dark cherry fruit flavours and Parma violet flavours, an elegant mineral edge and a long, spicy finish.
Food Suggestion: The perfect partner for red-meat dishes: Lamb, steak and game.
Closure: Natural Cork ABV:12.5% Acidity [g/l]: 5.53
