The opinion of the sommelierLes Rocailles, by the very talented winemaker Pierre Finon, does honour the great appellation of Saint-Joseph. A powerful wine that expresses delicious aromas of blueberry and black pepper, and refreshed by notes of violet specific to syrah. On the palate, a beautiful finish with tannins that shows us a strong wine with a great ageing potential.
TerroirLocated on the slopes of the right bank of the Rhone Valley, the vineyard of the Domaine Pierre Finon enjoys a granite soil covered with a layer of gneiss and shale. It is a soil rich in minerals, which is typical in the north of the Rhone Valley. It offers fine wines with deep ripe fruits and spices.
Grape varietySyrah is the emblematic black grape of the northern part of the Rhone Valley and the only black grape of the Saint-Joseph appellation. It has a spicy character and delicious aromas of violet that it expresses in the wines it gives, as fine as complex. A balance bet-ween power and finesse specific to the Northern Rhone Valley.
VintageThe 2015 vintage was a great success in the Rhône Valley. The vine grow its grapes slowly thanks to a mild spring. Then, the incredibly hot summer allowed the grapes to ripen well. The harvest season came, the rain allowed to refresh and rehydrate the vine. The harvest showed grapes with an ideal ripening and a nice volume of juice.
