M. Chapoutier, Saint Joseph ‘Le Clos’ Magnum
Tasting note from barrel (April 2020): Le Clos: a voyage to the heart of the Tournon Granits, distinguished, massive and powerful with tiny grains which flood through the mouth, offering a perfect signature for the terroir.
This amazing block on a full east hillside with Small yields and optimum ripening gives unique well rounded, structured and powerful wine.

M Chapoutier’s ‘Selections Parcellaires’ (Single Vineyard Selectons) are exceptional wines, born from a single plot. A celebration of terroir. Farmed biodynamically with the highest respect for the soil, the vines and the environment.
