Winery Notes:

Our 2018 is sanguine, it has texture. It has the brooding depth that we love in a mature Saint Joseph: it makes you suddenly feel like eating a nice peppery steak. We picked very late in 2018 - in October as usual. I love the slow ripening afforded by cool climates - it combines texture and balance. I am very grateful to the family who make this wine with me: thanks to their professionalism and above all their loyalty for the past two decades I can offer you this beautiful wine decorated with an Indian ink drawing by my grandfather, the historian Jean Barruol. Peony, blackberry, liquorice, mild tobacco.

100% Serine (ancient variety of Syrah).

Juicy and still youthfully compact, with singed mesquite and incense wrapped around a core of lightly mulled cherry, plum and blackberry fruit flavors. Incense note curls around the finish too. Should blossom with a touch of cellaring. Best from 2022 through 2030. 900 cases made, 250 cases imported.

The 2018 Saint Joseph comes all from the northern part of the Northern Rhône and offers more peppery stems, violets, and herbal notes as well as a medium-bodied, fresh, elegant style on the palate. With fine tannins and rock-solid overall balance, it should end up being an outstanding wine.
