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

Rated 93 by Wine Spectator
Lively pepper and bay notes lead the way, followed by more savory details that are easily absorbed by the core of juicy cherry and blackberry fruit. Fresh, showing minerally cut through the finish. Drink now through 2023. 56 cases imported.
Rated 93 by Robert Parker
Sporting a terrific mostly opaque purple color, the 2013 Saint Joseph les Granits gives up a gorgeous perfume of crushed rocks, violets, bay leaf, charcoal, and black and blue fruits. Medium to full-bodied, structured and tannic, it needs 3-4 years of cellaring but should have two decades of overall longevity. While this cuvee is normally exuberant and sexy, this 2013 is much more classically styled.

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

Winery M. Chapoutier

Varietal: Syrah

Whilst there remains plenty of debate over which is the 'correct' name for the Shiraz/Syrah grape varietal, nobody is in any doubt about the influence and popularity this grape has had over recent decades. For centuries, this varietal has been used in single variety and blended wines in the regions of France it is most closely associated with, yet the 20th century saw it become one of the definitive grape varietals of New World red wines, where its big, robust character and spicy, berry-rich flavors proved to be a hit with international audiences. Today, Shiraz/Syrah is said to be the seventh most widely planted grape varietal in the world, and is used for a remarkably wide variety of quality red wines – including still, sparkling and fortified varieties.

Region: Rhone Valley

There are few wine regions in the world with a history as long and illustrious as that of the Rhone Valley in France. For over two thousand years, wines have been produced in this region, benefited by the excellent, mineral-rich soils of the region, and the varied climate which allows a wide range of grape varietals to grow. The Rhone Valley is now split into two quite separate regions, with the north part being characterized by its cooler, continental climate and the limited number of grape varietals grown, and the southern sub-region being perfect for growing a wide range of grapes, and producing an exciting number of different wine styles. The Rhone Valley is associated with elegant, flavorful wines, and certain grape varietals such as Viognier and Syrah, which are adept at expressing the finer features of their terroir.

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.
