Saint Joseph 2013

AOP Saint Joseph Red


  • 14/20 Bettane & Desseauve


Deep seductive ruby red colour. After the first nose of fresh spices (white pepper) come elegant oaky notes. On the palate, tannins are harmonious. The finish is long and smooth and reveals the distinctiveness of the different parcels selected to make this wine (June 2015)
