Saint Joseph Les Granits, Chapoutier 2018
The 2018 Saint-Joseph Les Granits is just about always one of the top wines from this appellation. It comes from a single, south-facing hillside vineyard located just south of Tournon, in the southern part of the appellation. It's deeply colored and has a powerful, full-bodied style that shows the vintage beautifully. Blackcurrants, blackberries, spice-box, saddle leather, and garrigue notes all give way to a powerful, opulent Saint Joseph that has ripe tannins, loads of fruit, and a great finish.
