2017 Michel Chapoutier St. Joseph Blanc "Les Granits", 6x750ml OWCs
Regular price $3,300.00
- 100% Marsanne from the best sites and some of the oldest vines in the appellation, the steep granite rich slopes around Tournon.
- Half of the wine is fermented in vats, the other part in big wooden barrels (600 liters). Ageing takes place on lees from 8 to 10 months, with battonage, and the two parts are blended before bottling.
- "Butter, flint, very savoury and tight with a long, savoury finish. Much less opulence than many Rhône whites, and there is a saline element on the finish."
16.5/20 Richard Hemming MW for Jancisrobinson.com.
- Available in 6 bottle OWCs.
