2005 M. Chapoutier St. Joseph Les Granits – France, Rhône, Northern Rhône, St. Joseph (4/9/2008)Beautiful delineated red and black berries on the nose with a hint of vanilla and a dollop of black coffee. Still a fair amount of tannins on the palate, but this has a lot of material: fruit, vanilla, balancing acidity, hint of minerals. Very young still. > Read more …
