2015 Saint Joseph Rouge

Domaine Faury

2015 Saint Joseph <i>Rouge</i> Domaine Faury - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Vintage 2015 in the northern Rhône gave a generous, full-throttle style of Syrah loaded with dense, ripe tannins. Lionel Faury beautifully captured the exceptional conditions: the pungent aroma of this inky-dark Saint Joseph betrays its deep, concentrated flavors the product of low yields of ripe Syrah in granite soils. Black olive, black fruit, and roasted spices soar from the glass, and yet the wine somehow graces the palate with a featherweight touch—that’s the Faury signature. The hedonistic richness of flavor flows seamlessly into an elegant, silky finish, perfect for smoky summer barbecues as well as warming comfort on a cool, foggy night.

About Northern Rhône

On the wines of the northern Rhône, Kermit wrote in Adventures on the Wine Route, “The best combine a reminder of the sunny Mediterranean with the more self-conscious, intellectual appeal of the great Burgundies farther north, which is not a bad combination.” Like the wines of Provence, Burgundy, and Beaujolais, Kermit was introduced to this region by Richard Olney, an American ex-pat and friend of Alice Waters.

Though technically part of the same region as the southern Rhône and connected by the Rhône River, much differentiates the north from the south. The climate is continental and in general cooler than that Mediterranean climate of the south. The appellations are significantly smaller: Cornas has less than 300 acres planted to vine and Hermitage around 345. The area planted is minute when compared to Gigondas (3,000+ acres) and Châteauneuf-du-Pape (nearly 8,000 acres). Many of the great wines come from steep hillside vines—terraced during Roman times. It was clear to the Romans that great wine could be made here and DNA evidence now shows that Syrah is in fact indigenous to the Rhône.

The terroir is predominantly granite and lastly, blends of the wines are mostly single grape varieties. Only four grape varieties are permitted in AOC blends: Syrah, Viogner, Marsanne, and Roussanne (as compared to the 19 permitted varieties allowed in Châteauneuf). The red wines are nearly all Syrah and Condrieu and Château Grillet must be 100% Viogner. The whites of Hermitage, Saint Joseph, Saint Péray, and Crozes-Hermitages may only be blends of Marsanne and Roussanne.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
