Tasting

“Largely in the same style as the 2018, the 2019 Saint Joseph Laurus highlights beautiful purity of fruit balanced by notable minerality, medium-bodied richness, good acidity, and a great finish. It should easily be an outstanding wine.” Jeb Dunnuck November 2021

Detailed information

Vintage

In the northern Rhône Valley, this vintage offers a great quality, solar with a great freshness. Following a rather warm start to the spring, temperatures dropped and remained below seasonal averages until the beginning of summer. The vines then faced high temperatures in July and August. Thankfully, rain arrived at the beginning of the harvests, ensuring both quantity and quality for all of our appellations.

Grape varieties

Syrah

Terroir

Our parcel selection sources from:
– “Serine” grapes (Syrah especially selected from the most robust non-clonal vines) and classic Syrah from the South-facing granite slopes at 250m in altitude in the northern St Joseph communes of Malleval and Roche Courbe. These terroirs produce wines with delicate smoky, spicy and violet aromas as well as a refreshing livelyness.
– Syrah from complex granite-based slopes facing Southwest at 200m in altitude in the central part of the St Joseph appellation around St Jean de Muzols.
