2019 Saint-Joseph Rouge

Jean-Claude Marsanne
Discount Eligible $49.00
AT CART MAX

Pour yourself a little glass of history with this one, a splash of the original “Vin de Mauves,” the centuries-old and nearly forgotten name given to the famed wines of the small slope above the village. Several vineyards on this hillside, including the Saint-Joseph parcel (which provided the name for this appellation that now covers a whopping twenty-six villages near and far), have been farmed by the Marsanne family for generations. The violets, tapenade, and juicy black fruit in your glass is much unchanged from how it’s always been (and should be). The vines are still worked by hand, the wines still fermented with indigenous yeasts, the aging still done two years in old oak barrels before release. A delightfully old-fashioned rouge from the cradle of Saint-Joseph.
