Nicolas Badel "Montrond" Saint-Joseph 2014
A fresh, vibrant expression of syrah from St. Joseph. The 15 to 25 year old vineyards where the grapes are grown are near the village of Limony, in the northern part of the appellation at 300m elevation, overlooking the Rhône river.
Vinification 100% destemmed. Temperature-controlled fermentation in cement vats. Aged for 10 months in 3 to 5 year old barrels.
Tasting Notes Aromas of appealing red fruits, violet and blackcurrant. After breathing, notes of cherry and eau-de-vie (French brandy) appear. A full and juicy Saint-Joseph precise and smoothed out tannins for a subtle and complex wine.
