Saint Joseph Blanc Les Granits, Northern Rhône, France, M Chapoutier 2011
2ha, 100% Marsanne
This wine comes from a small selection of very old Marsanne vines planted on steep granitic slopes in the South of Tournon. The granitic soil also contains stones and gravels. This gives a minerality to the wine, mixed with floral notes of honeysuckle and young lilies. This is a very well-balanced wine with a subtle finish of spices developing into honey with ageing.
"Pale honey colour. Honeysuckle nose. Pretty low acid makes it taste a little sweet but gloriously beguiling. Not that intense but very flattering with just a hint of bitter quinine quality on the end. Fun. " 17/20 JR jancisrobinson.com
"A gorgeous white that savvy consumers should snatch up, the 2011 St.-Joseph Les Granits Blanc is a smoking Marsanne that, as Northern Rhone whites go, represents an incredible value. Loaded with tropical fruits, melon, buttered citrus and bitter orange rind, this full-bodied beauty has knockout texture and richness, great acidity and blockbuster length." 95/100 Jed Dunnuck robertparker.com
