Terroir de Granit 2012 - Guy Farge, Saint-Joseph

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

This month, I felt like presenting the Saint Joseph appellation to all whom do not know it yet. This wine is very typical of the appellation: it shows flavours of warm granite, a fat and silky texture with aromas of black berries, and a finish of black pepper typical of syrah. I tasted it on a delicious charcuterie board. 

 

Terroir

Saint Joseph is one of the most beautiful appellations of the Rhône Valley. Indeed, the vines are planted on steep hillsides and circled by walls of ancient stones, next to the Rhône River. This way of planting the vines ensures a good exposure to the sun as well as a high level of water stress.

lecepage Grape variety

Even though syrah is a variety with low yields and is really sensitive to various diseases, it is one of the six most used varieties in the world. It is used worldwide, even in Australia where it is known under the name of shiraz. It gives elegant and harmonious wines with spicy aromas, mostly pepper. Will you find it in your glass?

lemillesime Vintage

The 2012 vintage was very good in the Rhône Valley. Summer was warm and sunny and the health conditions of the vines were better than the previous years. Thus, winemakers were able to use very few pesticides. Saint Joseph was no exception, and the grapes reached a level of concentration higher than usual. This condition allows syrah to be exceptionally expressive and to enjoy its aromas at their full potential. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

The history of the vineyard began in 1920 when Henri Farge bought 12 hectares from a general from Normandy. Since 1980, it is Guy Farge who rules the vineyard. When Guy got in charge, the grapes were sold to wine merchants. But he decided to elaborate and bottle his own wines. Therefore, he made a few changes. The first one was to choose to work on the vines exclusively manually. And at My VitiBox, we appreciate when hard work is provided in order to make good wine!
