M. Chapoutier, Saint Joseph ‘Les Granits’
Tasting note from barrel (April 2020): Les Granits red: a typical Granit of a grand vintage: powerful, austere and singular, with notes of bitumen and its characteristic reduction. Remarkably soft tannins to conclude this fine potential.
Les Granits Red is a blend of the AOC’s iconic plots. They are located close to the historic heart of Tournon and come from the east-facing Montagnon lieu-dit, which gives the wine a fabulous luscious character, and from the Saint-Joseph lieu-dit, which lends the wine a lovely concentration thanks to its south-facing exposure and its poor granitic sands.
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.
