2019 Saint Joseph Rouge

Lionel Faury
Discount Eligible $37.00
SOLD OUT

Right down the road from André Perret’s Condrieu vines, Lionel Faury produces this classic, gorgeous Saint Joseph. Lionel has had a large part in bringing the appellation its deserved acclaim in recent years, crafting reds that are incredibly transparent and expressive. Evoking dark fruit, smoke, and black olives, this rouge is a perfect match for pita and roasted cauliflower hummus or grilled rosemary lamb chops.

Sampling wine out of the barrel.

When buying red Burgundy, I think we should remember:

1. Big wines do not age better than light wine.
2. A so-called great vintage at the outset does not guarantee a great vintage for the duration.
3. A so-called off vintage at the outset does not mean the wines do not have a brilliant future ahead of them.
4. Red Burgundy should not taste like Guigal Côte-Rôtie, even if most wine writers wish it would.
5. Don’t follow leaders; watch yer parking meters.
