2021 Saint-Joseph Rouge “L’Instinct”

Domaine Jolivet
Discount Eligible $49.00
AT CART MAX

A classic interpretation of this great terroir for Syrah, fermented whole-cluster and aged in the traditional larger cask of the region, the demi-muid, 2021 has the added bonus of coming from a classic throwback vintage with slightly cooler average temperatures. It is a real-deal northern Rhône roasted-slope Syrah that walks the tightrope perfectly between creamy fruit, meaty tannins, and fresh spine—another great one for the cellar if you can keep your hands off it!

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
