M. Chapoutier Deschants Rhone Valley Saint-Joseph 2017

Juicy, floral and spicy wine from steep slopes of the right bank of the Rhône river, vinified in concrete tanks
and aged in a mixture of concrete and oak that adds depth and complexity.

The Saint-Joseph appellation extends
around fifty kilometres on the right bank
of the River Rhone, from Chavanay in the
north to Guilherand-Granges, near Valence,
in the south. The mainly-east facing
vineyards are planted on the steep slopes
of gneiss and local granite schist,
occasionally coated with lenses of loess.
This variety of substrates enables
us to combine complexity, volume
and tautness in our Deschants wine.
Harvest
From the veraison, we are regularly
checking the maturity evolution.
Grapes are hand-harvested to the optimal
maturity.
Vinification
The wine is vinified in open concrete tank
with one or two daily pumping over.
Vatting lasts between 3 and 4 weeks.
Maturing
The wine is mainly aged in vats with a part
of oak casks from 12 to 18 months.

Colour: intense garnet red.
Nose: very floral (violet), developing
into liquorice and spices.
Palate: supple attack with a dominant
of red fruits. The final is long with spices.
