Domaine & Maison Les Alexandrins
2017 Domaine Les Alexandrins Saint-Joseph

“Wines like this, from vines that are up to 90 years old, are why St-Joseph is being taken increasingly seriously. It’s made from vines growing in granite subsoil topped by weathered granite and the region’s distinctive galet stones. Smoky, sweet almond notes are joined by powerful, structured cherry and blackberry notes which will come to the fore in the bottle – it’s currently still in the barrel until the end of 2018. No new oak used.”
