Saint-Joseph ‘Clos Florentin’

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave, Saint-Joseph ‘Clos Florentin’, 2016

RRP £76

The second vintage of Jean-Louis Chave’s first single-vineyard Saint-Joseph. What strikes you most of all is the beautiful shape and elegance. It’s perfectly balanced, fairly slim in profile, with expressive aromatics, with star anise to the blackberry fruit. It’s fresh and gentle, but not without depth, and has supple texture and a precise tannic frame. A wine of great purity, sensual rather than hedonistic.
