2017 Michel Chapoutier St. Joseph Rouge "Le Clos", 6x750ml OWCs
Regular price $6,480.00
- 100% Syrah from a walled vineyard characterised by brown soils derived from coarse-grained, and black mica granite.
- 5 week maceration in small concrete vats, matured entirely in barrels for around 20 months period (25% new barrels).
"The 2017 Saint-Joseph Le Clos takes intensity and richness in Saint-Joseph to virtually another level. Loaded with dense, ripe fruit from its facing slopes, it should prove to be a great, long-lived wine. Plum and blueberry notes merge seamlessly with crushed stone to create a concentrated, full-bodied wine, with terrific structure and length...among the best St. Joes I've ever tasted."
