Professional Wine Reviews for M. Chapoutier St. Joseph Blanc Les Granits 2013

Rated 96 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Saint Joseph les Granits Blanc, which had just been recently bottled, showed brilliantly, and certainly doesn't appear to be a kink in the recent string of incredible vintages of this cuvee. Possessing an exotic, perfumed style, it gives up tons of white peach, caramelized citrus, brioche and orange marmalade, with more and more floral and exotic qualities with time in the glass. Full-bodied, ripe, textured and layered, with beautiful freshness, this is another blockbuster vintage of this cuvee not to miss.
Rated 93 by Wine Spectator
A solid white, with a core of peach, melon, nectarine and Jonagold apple flavors, all laced with honeysuckle, heather and chamomile notes. Shows a long blanched almond edge through the finish, which is racy and pure. Drink now through 2023. 66 cases imported.

Additional Information on M. Chapoutier St. Joseph Blanc Les Granits 2013

Winery: M. Chapoutier

Region: Rhone Valley

In southern France, one of the primary wine regions responsible for the production of a fine and varied range of wines is the Rhone Valley. Split into two large sub-regions, this expansive valley benefits from micro-climates which allow the wineries to grow a vast array of fine grape varietals. The northern region is the more limited one in regards to the amount of varietals grown, focusing predominantly on raising excellent quality Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier vines for their distinctive and elegant range of wines. The southern region, on the other hand, has a beautifully Mediterranean climate, and is home to dozens of grape varietals which are used to produce white, red and rosé wines, alongside some of the most famous and widely loved blended wines in the world.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
