Chapoutier Saint-Joseph “Les Granits” Blanc


This vineyard was originally established in the areas surrounding Tournon: Mauves, Saint-Jean de Muzols et Lemps. “Mauve wines” were highly regarded in the last century even as far afield as Russia, on the Tsars’ dining table. Two sites had already gained notoriety at that time: Saint-Joseph hill-side, a parcel of land owned today by Maison M. Chapoutier, as well as that of Saint-Epine.

Golden yellow hue; slightly mineral with floral touches of honeysuckle and lily. Well balanced and harmonious with subtle spices developing into mellowed honey.
