2021 M. Chapoutier "Les Granits" St-Joseph Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1651940 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A touch of rubbery reduction on the nose for now. It's full-bodied, fairly concentrated, and generous. There’s wonderful freshness, a particularly strong mineral expression. Finishes on a touch of toasty oak. A great vintage of Les Granits. A very granitic expression from an east-facing plot in lieu-dit St-Joseph, near Mauves. (MW) Inner quote mark (9/2022)

Outer quote mark Saint Joseph wasn't affected by the frost, so the production of the 2021 Saint Joseph Les Granits Blanc is healthy. It's a terrific wine as well and offers a medium gold hue to go with impressive aromatics of honeyed stone, apricot, white flowers, and orange blossom-like nuances. It shows the fresh, classic, focused style of the vintage and is a beautiful Saint Joseph Blanc to enjoy over the coming decade. Inner quote mark (12/2022)

K&L Notes

John Livingstone Learmonth The Cradle of the Rhone: "full yellow, low gold; this was decanted because it was very reduced. The nose is spiced, comes with apricot, peach, notes of orange zest. The palate is very Marsanne marked with stem ginger, hazelnut influences, dried fruits such as apricot, herbal tea, camomile as well. The palate is well founded, ground strength in it. There’s a feel of old vines sap [sève] along the second half, good, as is the balance. This is STGT wine, bottled last week Aug 2022. 2037-39." (10/2022)
