Tasting Notes

2 ha, 100% Marsanne. This wine comes from a small selection of very old Marsanne vines planted on steep granitic slopes in the South of Tournon. The granitic soil also contains stones and gravels. Deep gold. Quite extraordinary richness and life here. All the early summer blossom you could imagine with a hint of ginger too. There is enough acidity but it tastes as though there is quite a bit of alcohol too. A whiff of ginger and a slightly bitter note on the finish are not detrimental. I can’t remember tasting a more exciting white St-Joseph. Jancis Robinson
