Saint-Joseph

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave, Saint-Joseph, 2013

RRP £55

A long, drawn-out vintage that finished late in the season has produced a fresh and peppery Saint-Joseph in 2013 – more white pepper than black. It’s lighter in fruit than some years, with just-ripe blackberry flavour and no excesses. It doesn’t have the same length and depth of flavour as some of the more recent warmer vintages, but it’s lively and precise. A vintage that refreshes – the kind of wine that’s so drinkable the bottle is finished before you know it.
