M. Chapoutier Saint-Joseph 'Les Granits', Blanc Rhone, France 2014

Regular price $ 88.75

Limpid gold. A wild, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes fresh orchard and pit fruits, orange zest and iodine, complemented by a chalky mineral overtone and a hint of jasmine. Sappy, incisive and pure on the palate, offering concentrated pear and nectarine flavors underscored by a smoky quality. Shows outstanding energy and focus on the finish, which lingers with serious, minerally tenacity. (Incidentally, the 2005, which I drank in early March, was wonderful, offering excellent depth and ripe pit fruit, honey and toasted nut qualities.)
