Bright violet. Vibrant, mineral-laced aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, Indian spices and olive, along with a hint of licorice. Palate-staining, concentrated blackberry and cherry preserve, candied violet and peppery spice flavors show excellent clarity, lift and power. The floral quality drives the finish, which hangs on with excellent tenacity and just a hint of fine-grained tannins. ... More details

Another outstanding wine from this estate that shines for its purity and elegance is the 2013 St Joseph Domaine de Croix de Vignes, which comes from 1.5-hectare of vines located just outside Tournon and Mauves. Aged in 20% new French oak, it has classic notes of dark fruits, olive, licorice, smoked earth and distinct minerality. Medium-bodied, elegant and seamless with fine tannin, it's already approachable in a youthful sort of way, but will evolve nicely for 10-12 years.

Varietal: Syrah

The Shiraz or Syrah grape varietal has seen a huge surge in popularity over the past few decades, partly due to the fact that more and more wineries around the world are beginning to plant and process this robust and flavorful grape for international audiences. This varietal has plenty going for it, and has the special ability of being able to clearly express positive features of its terroir in the bottle, alongside its characteristic flavors of dark berries, pepper and other spices. Shiraz/Syrah is also notably a highly versatile grape, and has been successfully used in several type of still red wine, as well as excellent sparkling and fortified wines. It is also regularly used as a blending grape, where it is prized for its ability to add a bold and strong, spicy punch to mellow, blended wines.

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.

However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country.
